'After deciding a career in pathology was for me, I spent a great deal of time reading job advertisements. The overwhelming majority of pathology jobs require the medical laboratory science degree. I chose QUT because their course is centred on practical and specific pathology subjects, and extremely focused on career pathways. I was impressed with the industry connections and quality of the lecturers and guest speakers. Every one of them had extensive experience and ties to the industry.'

Valuable placement experience
'In my final year I had a 12-week laboratory placement in an area of my preference. This was in a busy metropolitan histology laboratory, where I had the chance to rotate through all the different areas, including embedding, sectioning, special stains and immunohistochemistry. I found the experience extremely interesting and valuable, and it led to my first job in a pathology laboratory.'
