The symposium will be held in the Pengiran Anak Puteri Rashidah Sa’adatul Bolkiah Institute of Health Sciences (PAPRSB IHS or just IHS for short) of the university campus. Formerly inaugurated as the Institute of Medicine in September 2000, it was renamed to PAPRSB IHS in July 2009, following the integration between the Pengiran Anak Puteri Rashidah Sa’adatul Bolkiah College of Nursing with the Institute of Medicine. It was established in line with the vision of the Government of Brunei Darussalam to provide medical training not only to Brunei students but also to students from other parts of this region as expressed by His Majesty the Sultan in his speech during Universiti Brunei Darussalam’s twelfth Convocation. The offered IHS programmes are products of a continuous review of the curricula which is designed to encourage innovation and entrepreneurship, the development of leadership skills, and the fostering of a keen sense of awareness towards the environment.
