The MD program at Griffith is a graduate entry degree; school leavers who wish to apply have 2 options.

  • Apply to Bachelor of Medical Science (MD Provisional Entry for School Leavers) at Brisbane (Nathan campus) or Gold Coast (Parklands campus).  This degree is a 2 year accelerated course, there is no UMAT or interview process required.  Students graduate with a GPA of 5 or higher, successfully complete “Human Skills for Medicine” and move seamlessly into the MD program.
  • The second option is to apply after completion of a health or a non health related degree.  Selection here is based on a combination of a student’s GPA and GAMSAT (Graduate Medical School Admissions Test) results which leads to participation in the GUMSAA (Griffith University Multiple Stations Admission Assessment) competitive process.

Each option will now have a rural student quota of 25% of the year cohort.

Rural background is defined as having spent 10 years collectively or 5 years consecutively in areas 2-5 in the Australian Statistical and Geographical Category of Remoteness Areas.

QRME has partnered with Griffith University to deliver the rural clinical school of the MD.  Griffith University and QRME support students in campuses in Kingaroy, Dalby, Toowoomba, Warwick and Stanthorpe.  MD students may spend up to 12 months in a rural campus during their study; this program is known as the Griffith Rural Medical Longlook.
