In 2012, as a graduate in the field of public health, Dinara Jumadilova was invited to participate in the 50th Graduate Study Program of the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG, Switzerland) to address the emerging global issues “in the world of 7 billion”. In recognition of her active participation in this program, she received a certificate from the Director-General of UNOG Mr. Kassym-Jomart Tokayev.
Upon return to Kazakhstan, Dr. Jumadilova worked in the area of healthcare quality for “American Gulf International”, a US-based organization, as a Project manager on preparation of three of the six hospitals of the National Medical Holding (Astana) for Joint Commission International accreditation.
After successful completion of the project, Dr. Jumadilova enrolled into a residency program in Diagnostic Radiology at the National Research Cardiac Surgery Center in Astana (Kazakhstan). During her residency training, she received a prestigious scholarship from the European School of Radiology to support her subspecialty training at one of the Europe’s top educational facilities in Neuroradiology – Centre Hospitalier Sainte-Anne in Paris (France) under the guidance of Professors Jean-François Meder and Catherine Oppenheim. Dr. Jumadilova’s past experience of living in France and exposure to French culture helped her adapt very quickly and serve as a full-time resident working in French language, interpreting radiology images, presenting cases at clinical conferences and communicating with patients.
Along with the described above activities, she attended numerous specialty-related conferences and master-classes, among which are Journees Francaises de Radiologie 2014, SFR (Paris, France) and the Scientific meeting on Cardiac Imaging 2014, ESCR (Paris, France).
