Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

Pursuing my Master's degree in Occupational Therapy has been a dream come true for me and to be able to attend Georgia Regents University has been a privilege. The education I've received so far has been excellent and has really prepared me for my current clinic rotations. Being a great school, it's also very expensive! Though it's been worth it, the money I've had to borrow to get my degree will take quite a while to pay off.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

This is a great program that will give you the foundation to become excellent Medical Technologist. Most of the professors truly take the time to make sure you clearly understand the material and they show that they care. I enjoy this program.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

GRU is one of the frontrunners when it comes to health care and they display that in the education they provide. Graduate school is good value, but for an out of state student, is expensive.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

My program is based upon the concept of student centered learning. This is where the student has a major responsibility to learn concepts for themselves and knowledge gained is directly proportional to the work put in by the student. Student Centered learning is a pro and a con. It is a pro because I remember things better when I have to look for them myself and I learn how to manage my time and implement responsibility into my learning process. It is a con because I find myself wondering if I have missed information I need to be a successful Physical Therapist. For example, if I had to choose a Physical Therapist for my family member I would not neccesarily pick a Physical Therapist who went through student centered learning because I would wonder if they learned everything they needed to know and whether they learned it the correct way. I would most likely pick a physical therapist who was directly mentored by the best Physical Therapist possible because I would be confident they had thorough and complete knowledge. I learn a lot but I wish I had a little more clarification and examples to learn from before and after completeing assignments.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

The education provided by this school is excellent and the professors are extremely helpful. The only drawback is that the administrative departments are incredibly disorganized. This makes registration and financial aid applications a complete disaster. I have lost a significant amount of my own time and money due to various oversights in these departments. It is incentive enough for many students to go elsewhere.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

I am in my first year of the Physical Therapy program at Georgia Health Sciences University (now Georgia Regents). I feel that the program has a fantastic faculty who are readily accessible at almost all times of the day, and the students in the different years in the program have great camaraderie with their peers. I am thoroughly enjoying my time here in the program so far. One con would be that it would be nice if the program had a little more financial help in order to fund better technology for the students' research as they complete their research projects.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2014

Our PA program at Georgia regents university was so unbelievable competitive. Our faculty made sure that we always had cutting edge equipment. We learned anatomy on real and various cadavers, we had 3 fresh cadavers to practice all of our skills on before entering rotations, and we were always pushed to the max. Our PA program also won the GAPA BOWL 2014!
