The plant medicine industry has been growing in popularity and demand for plant medicines has been rising.
But the question of which plant medicine education is right for you may not be quite so clear cut.ABC science writer Andrew Groom says the answer is very complex.
He says plant medicine graduates will typically spend their career in the public sector, and that graduates in the private sector will usually go into science and medicine, while in the university sector, they will typically work in health.
“You need to be able to have a degree in some area of plant science,” Mr Groom said.
“In some cases you need to have worked in a plant pathology lab, and in others you need a degree that deals with plant pathology.”‘
It’s really not a science’If you have a background in a biological area and have done a lot of work in that field, you might be able make it as a plant medicine specialist or plant pathologist, he said.
But the problem is, if you don’t have a good background in that area, you can’t really get a job in that industry.
“If you want to be a plant pathologists, you have to have been working in the pathology field, so you need an understanding of pathology and how to get that to work in the plant pathology laboratory,” he said.
“That’s where you may find it difficult, and the industry is actually quite small.”
They can get very expensive.”‘
There are no guarantees’The biggest problem with getting a job as a senior plant medicine pathologist is that the industry does not guarantee a job, said Dr Groom.”
I think they can provide a lot for graduates with a good interest, but it’s just not guaranteed,” he explained.”
It’s not a guarantee that if you do well in the industry that you’ll get an interview for a job or an offer from the industry.
It is very difficult for the graduates that are graduating today to be accepted to the industry, or indeed to go on to get a decent job.
“So, how can you know which plant science school is right?
As a general rule, the answer to this question is simple: you have no idea.”
There’s no guarantees that you will get an offer of a job if you go to a plant science university, or if you are an undergraduate at an university,” said Dr Andrew Grooms.”
But I would think that the more relevant industry would be that of the pharmaceutical industry, which is the most important industry in terms of a lot that people would be doing.
“The big issue with plant medicine is that, while it is a viable career for graduates, it’s not one that most of us would want to do, especially when it comes to the public sphere.”
Most plant pathology graduates are not looking for jobs in the pharmaceutical sector,” he says.”
The public sphere is much more lucrative, and a lot more interesting, but plants are more vulnerable to drug shortages.
