Griffith University is another of the newer breed of Australian universities with a new medical school to boot (the first cohort having commenced in 2008). The university is named after Sir Samuel Walker Griffith, Premier of Queensland in the late 19th century and the first Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia. The university was founded in 1971 and classes commenced in 1975. It now features five campuses in and around the Queensland Gold Coast.

Whilst the medical school is very much still in its infancy, it has been bolstered by the construction of the 750-bed Gold Coast University Hospital (which opened in September 2013) to which it will be closely bound.
