Griffith Medicine program increases international reputation

14 September 2015

The Griffith medicine program has received international recognition by being ranked for the first time, in the latest QS World University Rankings by Subject.
The prestigious QS World University Rankings by Subject highlight the world’s top universities in a range of popular subject areas, covering 36 subjects as of 2015. Published annually since 2011, the rankings are based on academic reputation, employer reputation and research impact.

Meanwhile Psychology as a subject has been ranked in the Top 200 globally.
“This is recognition of all the hard work we have invested in creating world class programs and state-of-the-art facility,” says Professor Tony Perkins, Dean Academic for the Griffith Health Group.
“To be recognised internationally vindicates the strategic investment by the university over the past ten years and is a testament to the leadership of the PVC Health, Professor Allan Cripps.
“Being ranked internationally is important as world rankings influence the choice made by international students and makes us stand out in a competitive market.”
QS evaluated 3551 universities and 14,000 programs to gather this data.
“As a current medical student, it’s great to see that the calibre of junior doctors graduating from the medical school is being recognised in rankings such as the QS World University Rankings,” says fourth-year Griffith MD student Tommy Brennan. “It’s humbling to be a part of a pathway that leads to excellence in the medical field.”
The latest news comes as the QS World University Rankings by Subject awarded Griffith its highest ranking ever, while the Times Higher Education boosted Griffith’s place among the best universities in the world under 50.
