Further your knowledge with the Griffith School of Medicine and Dentistry

Our School is committed to the highest standards of learning and teaching across our diverse academic programs and courses. These include undergraduate and postgraduate programs in dentistry, medicine, dental hygiene, dental technology and dental prosthetics, paramedicine, and public health.

Our focus is on producing competent and compassionate graduates who, through application of knowledge and skills, are able to develop a commitment to service, teamwork, scientific inquiry and lifelong learning.

Dentistry and oral health

Students of Dentistry and Oral Health receive a dynamic learning experience, not only benefitting from the state-of-the-art labs but also from studying alongside registered dentists in real-life settings, ranging from major city hospitals to small rural clinics.

Programs are fully accredited by the Australian Dental Council for registration as a health professional by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency, and recognised by the Commission on Dental Education of Canada for registration as a dentist and by New Zealand’s Dental Council via Trans Tasman Mutual Recognition.

Medicine

Graduates of our program will normally be eligible for limited registration and will receive full registration by Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency when they've successfully completed a subsequent one-year internship in the Australian hospital system. Our medicine graduates are primed for multiple opportunities and ready to make a positive impact to the health outcomes of our communities.

Paramedicine

Demand for paramedics in South-East Queensland and Northern New South Wales currently exceeds supply and is expected to continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Our ageing population and the general population growth in these regions, plus projected expanded scope-of-practice for paramedics, will continue to drive the need for increased ambulance services.

Public Health

Public health and health promotion aims to understand and act on factors that cause poor health, and those that create and sustain good health. Professionals in the sector operate on the basis that prevention is better than cure, focusing on the systems and practices that shape the health of nations, communities, individuals and the environments in which we live, work and play.
