The ageing of the Australian population is expected to drive strong demand for pathology services and medical scientists.
It’s projected that between 2013 and 2018, employment of medical scientists will increase 13.7% above the projected increase across all occupations (7.2%).
There is also a shortage of medical scientists in a number of countries worldwide.
The School of Health and Biomedical Sciences has extensive links with industry through their program advisory committees (PACs), research projects, and consulting.
Employers and industry professionals are members of these program advisory committees. They have contributed to both the initial development and ongoing improvement of this degree.
