Inherited colon cancer, colonic polyps and oesophageal disease.






























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

Dr Musgrave is Pathologist-in-Charge of Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology’s Histopathology Department, Brisbane.  He graduated in Medicine with Honours from The University of Queensland and completed specialist training in anatomical pathology at The Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital. After joining SNP in 2003, he worked briefly at the Southport laboratory before moving to the SNP laboratory at Greenslopes Private Hospital where he reported mainly gastrointestinal pathology but covered other areas such as general surgery, skin, neuropathology and gynaecological malignancy as part of the on-site frozen section service at GPH. He was also a member of the Greenslopes Private Hospital Medical Advisory Committee. Dr Musgrave is a member of the Queensland Gastroenterology Society.

A Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia (RCPA) he has for some years 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 a past-President of Australian Pathology (previously Pathology Australia) having filled this role from 2014 until 2018 and is still on the Executive of PA, a role he has filled since 2012.  

Dr Musgrave is also involved in increasing public awareness about pathology in his role as 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 Australian Pathology and through this, made a major contribution to public policy.
