After I graduated as a physician in 2017, I served as the Junior Consultant and Head of Department of Internal Medicine at Ruhengeri Referral Hospital in the Northern Province of Rwanda. Since 2018, I have been a Consultant Endoscopist, the Associate Academic Head of Department and Coordinator of International Medical Students at Butare University Teaching Hospital (Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Burate).  Beside medical practice, I have been the General Secretary and Treasurer of the Rwanda Society of Hepa-togastroenterology since 2016 and I am the Secretary of the Rwanda Society for Endoscopy.
