Mogadishu university was completely closed   in 1990.  Higher institutions in Somalia were academically and economically dependent on foreign assistance. "Cooperazione Italiano" was the main financier for the Somali National University. As a result, Italian professors were the corner stone  of  the  academic  staff  and  Italian the corner  stone  of  the  academic  staff  and  Italian language  was  the  main  language  for  the instruction  of  the  university.  Besides that, many students were sent to friendly countries to attain higher degrees in many scientific fields. Former Soviet Union, China, Egypt and Italy were the major countries offering Somali students scholarships and training in their countries.  After  the  establishment  of  the Somali  National  University,  students  of  the university were not only given free  education, housing,  food  and  medical  care,  but  also offered monthly honorarium and secured government jobs  after their graduation. The impact of  the  university  in  the  social  change  was  so  immense  that  locally  trained  medical  doctors, engineers, agriculturalists,  veterinarians  and specialists on  arts  and literature  were  visible in all institutions of the state and in every corner of Somalia.

The College of Health Sciences Bosaso was established in September of the year 2000 in response to the scarcity of medical professionals in Somalia at that time as a result of the civil war that caused killings and gravitation of most medical personnel to other countries.  Since its inception, 847 students have graduated from the college out of which 512 are female and 335 are male.  In light of the fact that the college has responded to the demand to improve the health system of Puntland state of Somalia and succeeded in producing competent medical health practitioners, as well as having over 12 years of experience in both facets of community and formal health care trainings, the government of Puntland state of Somalia through its ministry of health chartered the college and elevated it to a University status in the year 2012 and named it The University Of Health Sciences
