Seeking more knowledge and a competitive edge to advance his career, Abdullah Aloniadeel travelled to Melbourne to study the Master of Laboratory Medicine at RMIT.
Master of Laboratory Medicine
When I graduate I want to establish an innovative national organ and blood donation program in Saudi Arabia, to minimise risk factors and accelerate the transportation and transplantation process.
After completing studies in clinical laboratory science at King Saud University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, I worked as a laboratory specialist at the Ministry of Health in Saudi Arabia.
After four years there, I was looking to increase my knowledge, and wanted a competitive edge to help me to advance my career, so I decided to study a Master of Laboratory Medicine at RMIT in Melbourne.
Outside of Australia, this program has a very strong reputation as one of the best universities to study Laboratory Medicine.
The facilities at RMIT such as libraries, laboratories, microscopes, and study rooms are second to none.
I particularly enjoyed studying the Transfusion and Transplantation Science course in the program where we got to learn about the risk factors that threaten the donation process and how we can overcome them – it is a challenging field.
I’m currently combining my studies with working for the Ministry of Health in Saudi Arabia. I am a certified trainer for more than 500 employees as part of national training program and also represent the Ministry as a medical waste officer for the World Health Organisation (WHO).
