What Matters
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​IDEXX Pathology is a global team of Veterinary Pathologists who bring experience, dedication and passion to the work we do – because what we do matters. We use our expertise to provide critical diagnostic information to our customers, enabling clinicians and pet owners to make the most informed decisions for the care of their animals. Across IDEXX, there is a contagious energy that inspires caring and committed people to come together to advance the standard of care for the animals we love around the globe.

What Matters.


We work as a collaborative team and are supported by a culture of innovation, enabling us to do our best work with 24/7 support.  We partner with universities and governing bodies, and we encourage our Specialists to continue their own education and give back to the communities in which they live and work.  We are committed to our employees and the industry we serve.


Our patient-first focus drives our commitment to quality.  We know that each case we see represents an animal who is counting on us to get it right. What we do each day is more than just a job, it’s a promise to our clients. We are proud to deliver on that promise.


Now more than ever, we recognize that flexibility is important to maintaining balance between work and our everyday lives. We provide lab-based and remote employment opportunities that will fit your lifestyle and schedule, while still allowing you to stay connected and engaged with colleagues and clients.

What our global team members are saying

"Working as a large multinational team I get to work alongside experts in many fields and enthusiastic colleagues from around the globe. It is an environment in which I can constantly learn and help contribute to the development of what a diagnostic laboratory can offer to the veterinary profession. A large part of the job satisfaction I get working here is the large number of people I get to work alongside and interact with on a daily basis."

"It took me some time to realize that I wanted to be a pathologist! – not a straightforward path (pun intended). I worked in small animal practice in Spain for 7 years before coming to New York City. While I always loved Clinical Pathology, I never thought about becoming one. Rotating through the Clinical Pathology department/ALX Laboratories at the AMC (now IDEXX) made me realize how much I enjoyed it. Becoming a CP was the perfect opportunity to keep the connection with the patients that I loved while learning a new skill that took my career to a whole different level."

"Being an Anatomic Pathologist provides an opportunity to study and work with all the organ systems, and many different species. Also, I always enjoyed the problem-solving aspect of veterinary medicine (looking at the clinical signs and clinical data, and coming up with differentials), which aligns with the job of a pathologist. Plus, I just love looking at histology slides and the mystery that comes with every new case I open."

"While I get to work with some of the best and most professional pathologists every day, I also have the opportunity to engage with marketing, sales, customer support teams, and internationally collaborate on pathology alignments and best processes. One of the things I have enjoyed most has been the community spirit. I was supported to bring my guide dog trainee puppy, Odessa, to work because of a special health issue that needed close monitoring. She has been great fun and a source of engagement with the local team."

Q&A with PathConnexx Alumni

Danielle L., DVM

Q: What was your favorite part about participating in PathConnexx? 
A: My favorite part of participating in PathConnexx was the people! During my time, I got to meet so many wonderful people who were patient, informative, and welcoming. They were open about working for IDEXX and more than willing to answer my questions both pathology-related and job-related. We had engaging conversations about diseases processes and life after residency.

Q: What was one thing about your PathConnexx Experience that surprised you? 
A: The ease of teamwork and communication really surprised me. With such a large pathology team, and members with numerous specialties, it was so easy to reach out for help on a case. And everyone was more than willing to give you a hand on a difficult or even silly case! In addition, your supervisors and managers were very open to hearing any concerns, suggestions, or questions.

Sophie M., DACVP

Q: What was your favorite part about participating in PathConnexx? 
A: The PathConnexx program I participated in was very well organized and gave a surprisingly thorough overview of the work as a pathologist at IDEXX. There was a lot of interaction with the pathologists on site and plenty of opportunities to ask questions and exchange expectations. Therefore, it was much more meaningful than any simple job interview could ever be (for both sides).

Q: If you had to offer one piece of advice to residents considering joining PathConnex in Europe, what would it be? 
 A: Should you consider a future in diagnostic pathology I can absolutely recommend attending PathConnexx Europe. As I would also always recommend thoroughly looking into any workplace that you wish to join as an employee.
