3 Pathways to careers in health As one of Australia s top research universities, Griffith University is focused on creating a healthy future for Australia and the world. A diverse, broad and interactive range of educational and research programs in health consistently targets the most effective delivery of healthcare today and into the future. Health students at Griffith University learn from and work with some of the finest clinical specialists and community health professionals in Australia, and are well prepared to take their advanced knowledge to the next level as future health professionals. Griffith Health With more than 10,000 students, Griffith Health is one of the largest health faculties in the Australian university sector. Griffith Health is helping to grow and shape the health workforce through an extensive range of degrees that can lead to career paths in biomedical science, dentistry and oral health, exercise science, health services management, human services, medical laboratory science, medicine, midwifery, nursing, nutrition and dietetics, occupational therapy, pharmacy, physiotherapy, psychology, public health, social work, and speech pathology. A range of outstanding facilities including the University s state-of-the-art anatomy dissection facility, medical science and clinical skills laboratories, ensure students are well prepared to enter the workforce. Students will also experience simulated wards and clinics and practise their skills on manikins before treating real patients. The new $1.76 billion University Hospital and the $150 million Griffith Health Centre, co-located at the campus, will further enhance clinical training and job opportunities for graduates. This Health and Knowledge Precinct will be supported by the world-class Griffith Health Institute where ground-breaking research into areas like chronic disease prevention and social health is ongoing.

The foundation year also provides some flexibility to students who may be unsure about which area they would like to study. Interdisciplinary learning is a priority across the suite of programs, with many health undergraduate programs leading to further study in a range of postgraduate areas. Students can choose their career paths with ease. 2
