After this, he worked in Ireland as a Senior House Officer and Registrar in General Medicine and Emergency Medicine, in places such as Clonmel, Sligo and Dublin before returning to South Africa to pursue a career in Radiology. Donovan worked as a Medical Officer in Emergency Medicine until he joined the Division of Radiology at Groote Schuur Hospital in 2014.
