Assuming the dual roles of President of Georgia Health Sciences University and Chief Executive Officer of the newly established Georgia Health Sciences Health System, Azziz has rapidly advanced the university’s mission of better health since beginning his tenure in July 2010. His administration’s vision is for the institution to become a leading academic health center and top-50 research university while transforming the institution and the region into a health care and biomedical research destination. Azziz—a recognized clinician, biomedical researcher and health care executive—continues his clinical practice at GHSU, as well as his androgen excess-related translational research. He came to GHSU from the Cedars-Sinai Health System, where he held the Helping Hand of Los Angeles Chair in Obstetrics and Gynecology, directed the Center for Androgen-Related Research and Discovery and chaired the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology. In addition, he served as Professor and Vice Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Professor of Medicine, Deputy Director of the Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute and Assistant Dean for Clinical and Translational Sciences at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine. He earned his medical degree from the Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine and master’s degrees in public health and business administration from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He completed an internship and residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Georgetown University Hospital and a fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. He served on the faculty at the University of Alabama at Birmingham for several years prior to his move to Los Angeles.
