Director of Pathology

Job title: Director of Pathology
Type of position: Director
Location Country: VIC - Australia
Company name: Melbourne Health
Discipline: Clinical Pathology
Job reference number: H17_2614

Melbourne Health is one of Australia’s leading public health care providers and they are now seeking an inspirational clinical leader to take on the role of Director of Pathology. Their mission is simple – to provide world-class healthcare for our community by embracing discovery and learning, building collaborative relationships, and engaging patients in their care.

The Pathology service of Melbourne Health provides diagnostic, clinical, teaching and research services that focus on supporting both acute care and community health services.

The Director of Pathology will lead the Pathology Department to assist Melbourne Health in achieving its vision of First in Care, Research and Learning. While a focus on operational efficiency and integration across the Pathology Services is important, a vision of building on the academic output of the Pathology Service is equally important. The Service has strong existing alliances with the University of Melbourne and the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and the Director of Pathology will be expected to maintain and grow these and other important partnerships in the Parkville Precinct.

This exciting leadership position has the opportunity to lead the development of a flexible and responsive Pathology Service with a structure and culture which ensures action in response to significant and emerging issues in healthcare.

The successful applicant will demonstrate:

  • Senior clinical leadership experience and skills and the ability to positively influence staff and key partners towards the achievement of the organisation’s mission;
  • Knowledge of the healthcare and pathology industries and an ability to apply that knowledge to improving the efficiency and integration of Pathology services across the organisation
  • A commitment and understanding of the important role academic and research pursuits play in developing a world class Pathology service; and
  • An ability to lead reform across technology, processes, workforce and service delivery.
