Where is the course held?
The course is delivered onsite at Mater Education’s South Brisbane campus.
You’ll need to attend vocational placement, which means you will be learning in the workplace as a part of your training. This will be at either Mater Pathology (Mater Hospital Brisbane) or a Mater Pathology Collection Centre.
While Mater Pathology will try to arrange a vocational placement as close to your residential address as possible (after consulting with you), all placements will be at its discretion.
Placements will be in Queensland only.
Is the course available part-time or online?
No. You must attend all lectures and vocational placement to successfully complete the course. However, there are online self-directed learning modules.
Is there a course program?
Yes. Refer to the Duration and Dates section for timetable information.
Will I get a job?
While Mater Pathology gives you the skills and knowledge to obtain a job at the end of this course, it doesn’t provide an employment placement service.
How do we practise taking blood?
It’s all done with "manikin" (artificial) arms.
What should I do if I have any other questions?
