Hi everyone, my name is Tinashe Nyamudoka. @tnashenyamudoka . I will be talking about my journey in wine that has taken me from polishing glasses, to being a sommelier, international wine judge, winemaker, wine investor and winepreneur. Over the next two years I got training in every department of the retail store. I want to believe that I learnt the art of SELLING and TRADING during these formative years. I might have traded some basic commodities 😬 but what fascinates me to this day is the side hustle I ran.

I shall not mention save to say that the institute is based in Bethesda, Maryland&one of the universities is based in Massachusetts. As one member of my doctoral committee put it, these are jobs that most American academics dream of and long for but will never have, yet I have 3. So what have I learnt in this journey.
1. Opportunities are there, if you dare look for them.
2. Even if you feel like you don't deserve or you are not good enough do not disqualify yourself
3. Beyond a certain level career success needs to be supported by good habits.

In 2011 I was offered a job at UZ Medical school as a lecturer in Radiology. At the time, my young sister was the Chairperson of the Sociology dept(she is now the Vice Chancellor of Women's University in Africa). Before I started work at UZ, I visited her&gleaned from her info about working at the UZ. After that, I also visited professor Nziramasanga who was heading the Teaching and Learning Centre. I asked him. a simple question-what should I do to succeed as a lecturer&become a professor in the fastest possible time. So before I even started work

I know I didn't deserve that fellowship. I believe that it was the doing of God. My fellow American professors think it is a dump think for a scientist to say, but I insist on telling people that I believe that I got that John Wakeford Fellowship by the doing of God. So I found myself with an offer from UZ which was too good to decline and the John Wakeford Fellowship which I really wanted. I had reached a fork in the road. I went to professor Jacob Mufunda who was the dean of the medical school&told him my story. He referred me to Dr Harrid

I will now turn to my professional journey and the lessons I learnt along the way. I would like to preface this section by emphasizing that we can and should learn from one another, but it can be both futile&frustrating to be a copycat. No one has a perfect career template. Having dispensed with that, I would like to add that learning from people who have made it or failed for that matter can save a lot of pain. When I look back I wish I had started learning from others much earlier in my life.

NUST also offers Masters degrees in Radiography, Medical Physics and Ultrasound.
Additionally Harare school of Radiography from time to time offers courses in Radiation Dosimetry and Ultrasound in conjunction with the Harare Institute of Technology (HIT). Most diagnostic radiographers are employed by private Radiology practices. Those in the public hospitals augment their salaries by doing locums in the private sector. There are only two radiotherapy departments in the country( Parirenyatwa&Mpilo).

In the first part, I introduced radiography in a very general way. In this part I provide more granular details and attempt to explain the different driving factors. I will in some detail discuss the labor market. There are many reasons that inform people's choices of careers. However, management expert Peter Drucker asserts that "anti-materialism is a myth". Hence the prospect of a good career and a good salary is one of the major motives for career choices.

My name is George. I am honored to share with you all some insights about radiography specifically and careers in general. I will begin by introducing the science of radiography, then present my own journey and the lessons I learnt along the way. I will also be available to answer questions.
In my short career I have had the privilege to introduce radiography to college students at both undergraduate and graduate levels. The word radiography is made up of 2 words-Radio&graphy. The radio is short for radiation&graphy refers to pictures.

After graduation, we had to complete 1 year of internship at public hospital labs before we could be issued with an open practising certificate. So I was seconded to the National Microbiology Reference Laboratory at Harare Hospital where I worked in the HIV lab. I was also concurrently doing my rotations in Haematology, Blood transfusion and Microbiology at the Harare Hospital lab and then went to Parirenyatwa hospital to do my Histology and Biochemistry rotations.

Now that we've talked about how one becomes a medical laboratory scientist, I will briefly talk about what medical laboratory scientists actually do and where we work , then I'll talk briefly about my journey as a scientist and then answer any of your questions If you've ever watched any medical drama like House or Grey's Anatomy, you'd think that doctors or nurses were responsible for your lab test results, but you'd be wrong. Medical lab scientists are the people who test your blood, body fluids and tissue to determine the cause and

Thank you @mentorshipzim for giving me an opportunity to talk about my profession. My name is Rufaro Kazuva and I am a medical laboratory scientist. I studied at the University of Zimbabwe from 2003 to 2007 and graduated with a Bachelor of Medical Laboratory science degree. My journey to becoming a medical lab scientist started when I was doing my A levels. Like many people, I had never heard of the profession before, and I first found out about it from a classmate while attending holiday lessons at Speciss college.
