The Griffith Health Centre places students, researchers and academic staff in prime position to further their pursuits like never before.
The new Health Centre operates in tandem with the new 750-bed University Hospital, creating a health hub with a dedicated focus on study, research and medical employment.
Medical facilities of the highest order, the most up-to-date knowledge and unique opportunities for collaboration make this one of the most exciting developments in Australia.
"I am really looking forward to the medicine and surgery electives that we will do in third year and also how these learning opportunities will be extended at the new Griffith Health Building and hospital," the Gold Coast resident said. "It will be fantastic to be able to benefit from all the new facilities and equipment."
The $150 million Health Centre represents Griffith University’s largest investment in a single building in its 40-year history.
All Griffith Health programs on the Gold Coast are together on the one campus with the schools of medicine, dentistry and oral health, and psychology now located under the one roof. The delivery of anatomy, social work, and nutrition and dietetics programs from the Health Centre further enhances our interdisciplinary focus, where teams of students from different areas in health work together to solve problems while learning about challenging healthcare issues.
Health students at the centre also gain hands-on experience with the delivery of clinical services to the general public such as dental care, physiotherapy, and psychology. The centre is also now a focal point for medical research, providing an ideal laboratory backdrop for staff from our Griffith Health Institute to continue and extend ground-breaking clinical trials
The Griffith Health Centre was officially opened on Friday 19 July, 2013 by her Excellency the Honourable Quentin Bryce AC CVO, Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia.
