Health & pathology industry

Pathology lies at the heart of health care services – our health outcomes are ultimately dependent on the quality of the pathology results.

From the initial collection of samples, to the pathology laboratories where the samples are tested, pathologists are the first physicians to diagnose and assist doctors and nurses in the ongoing care of their patient’s health. In fact, more than 70% of medical decisions are based on lab results.

Industry growth

Health care and social assistance is  Australia’s largest employing industry, accounting for 13% of the workforce. According to the Australian Jobs report, developed by the Department of Employment, growth in this industry is projected to increase by over 250,200 jobs (or 16.4%) by 2020.
