Director's Welcome


Robert Dollinger, M.D. Welcome to Augusta University and thank you for visiting the website of your Student Health Services!

Our motto is … to care, to cure, to educate. We provide quality and student-centered health care, health education, and preventive services to students enrolled at Augusta University. These services represent best-practices, assisting students to maintain health that will maximize their learning potential. We strive to meet and exceed your expectations through our four pillars of service excellence: clinical care, health education, student compliance with University policies, and student learning and engagement.

As an enrolled health-fee paying student, you are entitled to receive office visits to see a primary care physician, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, or nurse at the Student Health Clinic. The Clinic is located on the Health Sciences Campus and open Mondays through Fridays, appointments are preferred. Our health care services include primary care, women’s health, immunizations, lab, physical therapy, travel medicine, dietitian consultations, and basic office procedures. You don’t need health insurance to be seen at the clinic as our prices are nominal compared to local outpatient clinics and doctors’ offices. Students who are enrolled in the University System of Georgia/Board of Regents endorsed student health insurance plan typically don’t pay any out-of-pocket charges for tests, vaccines and procedures performed at the Clinic. We assist with your admission health requirements that include immunization and health insurance. We also provide health promotion outreach programs such as flu prevention clinics, breast cancer awareness, health screenings, and an annual health fair.

Finally, we sponsor the Student Health Advisory Council (SHAC), an official student organization at Augusta University that advocates for clinical and health promotion services for all students.
The staff at Student Health are passionate about college health and committed to helping students perform at their best. We strive to be the preferred resource for Augusta University students to receive professional and compassionate health care that fosters healthy lifestyles and lifelong learning.

Wishing you healthy academic success,
Robert Dollinger, MD
