Dr Nick Musgrave is a histopathologist specialising in gastroenterology. He is particularly interested in oesophageal disease, colonic polyps and inherited colon cancer syndromes.

Based at Greenslopes Private Hospital, he is the supervising pathologist at the Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology on-site laboratory.

Dr Musgrave graduated with Honours in Medicine from the University of Queensland and completed specialist training in anatomical pathology at the Royal Brisbane Hospital. Since joining Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology in 2003, he worked briefly at the Southport Laboratory before taking up his current position. He reports mainly gastrointestinal pathology but covers other areas as part of the on-site frozen section service at GPH. This includes general surgery, skin, neuropathology and gynaecological malignancy. Dr Musgrave is a member of the Queensland Gastroenterology Society and has been a member of the Greenslopes Private Hospital Medical Advisory Committee.

A Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia (RCPA) he played an active role in maintaining professional standards as a previous Queensland State Councillor for the College and as a member of the Commonwealth Government's Pathology Services Advisory Committee. Through his involvement in Pathology Australia, Dr Musgrave is actively involved in ensuring the high quality of Australian standards. He is the current President of Pathology Australia having filled this role since 2014 and has been on the Executive of PA since 2012.

Dr Musgrave is also involved in increasing public awareness about pathology. As a member of the Executive of Pathology Australia he is also a Media Ambassador for the Know Pathology Campaign, an educational campaign that emphasises the value of pathology in healthcare.

In many ways, he follows in the footsteps of his father, Dr John Musgrave, who was a founding partner of the practice when it was known as Drs JJ Sullivan, NJ Nicolaides and J Musgrave. As well as being a Histopathologist, Dr Musgrave (snr) was involved in the management of the practice in its early years and went on to become its first Managing Partner. He was actively involved in the early formation years of the Australian Association of Pathology Practices (AAPP) - the forerunner of Pathology Australia and through this, made a major contribution to public policy.
