Dr Fergus Whitehead’s journey has weaved and grown along with Clinpath’s. His passion started as a young boy, when inspired and guided by his father who is also a Pathologist, Emeritus Professor Richard Whitehead, realised he enjoyed analysing what he saw under the microscope lens. After graduating in medicine from Flinders University in 1988 he became a Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists in 1994. He held key positions with the Institute of Medical and Veterinary Science (IMVS) and Adelaide Pathology Partners (who merged with Clinpath in 2016) before being appointed as Clinpath’s CEO.

During his stay at Clinpath, Dr Whitehead obtained two postgraduate qualifications in cytopathology. In August 2002, he joined Adelaide Pathology Partners as a partner, acquiring Dr Jane Lomax Smith's share in the practice following her decision to enter politics.
