Georgia Regents University

On January 8, 2012 the University System of Georgia Board of Regents voted to consolidate two of its universities: Georgia Health Sciences University and Augusta State University. Late in 2012 the new university was officially named “Georgia Regents University.” The resulting public university has nine colleges:

  • College of Allied Health Sciences
  • College of Arts, Humanities, and Health Sciences
  • College of Dental Medicine
  • College of Education
  • College of Graduate Studies
  • College of Nursing
  • College of Science and Mathematics
  • Hull College of Business
  • Medical College of Georgia

Georgia Regents University (click on the link to learn more about the university’s full history) is located in Atlanta, Georgia and currently contains roughly 2,400 students. This includes about 400 undergraduate students, approximately 900 postgraduate students, and 1,100 doctoral students. The university is also home to the 478-bed Georgia Regents Medical Center, the Cancer Center, Medical College of Georgia, and the Children’s Hospital of Georgia. These facilities are all located on the Health Sciences campus, which features each of the university’s medical programs. These medical facilities are staffed with over 1,000 highly-decorated faculty members, who conduct medical research while also educating the university’s students. Stephen M. Black is one of these esteemed professors.
