Welcome to the College of Allied Health Sciences
The College of Allied Health Sciences at Georgia Regents University trains and educates today’s health care professionals: the therapists, technicians, administrators, managers, and assistants who are the backbone of our country’s health care workforce.
As the nation’s population ages and increasingly struggles with chronic disease and disability, as well as health care reform, our mission of educating premier health care professionals has never been more vital.
We stay on the leading edge of national trends and advances in science, technology, and professionalism. In just the last decade, we have expanded our graduate programs nearly 250 percent, bolstered our clinical mission, and multiplied our research initiatives threefold. Our students enjoy clinical opportunities across Georgia. We were an early proponent of interdisciplinary and distance education, and continue to lead the way with innovative programs such as our upcoming PhD program in Applied Health Sciences to fill the need for doctorally trained faculty and clinical professionals.
■ Over a dozen bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees, as well as post-baccalaureate certificates
■ 11 disciplines in fully-accredited programs
■ The only health sciences professions program in Georgia affiliated with an academic health center
■ State-of-the-art facilities
■ Near 100 percent employment at graduation
■ 95 percent student retention rate
■ Graduate programs consistently well-ranked by U.S. News & World Report
Please contact us. We'd love to show you what we have to offer tomorrow's health care professional.
