Radiography Placements in Ghana

Radiography Placements in Ghana

Our radiography work experience placements in Ghana are based in regional hospitals in Cape Coast and some smaller district hospitals. We deliberately choose regional hospitals in towns rather than small rural clinics so that you can gain experience in a broad range of pathologies during your time with us. Many of the hospitals have links with small rural clinics so if your time with us permits, we will also arrange for you to spend time on a rural outreach clinic, usually a rural inoculation programme.

The availability of CR and DR equipment is rare in Ghana with many of the hospitals still using film based scanning equipment. However, this is changing as DR equipment in particular has become more accessible. Additionally, Ghana is one of the region’s most stable democracies and as such it has a lot of equipment donated by well meaning institutions in more affluent countries. One of the biggest issues with this though is that this equipment often sits dormant due to a lack of staff training in the correct operation of the equipment. Staff often have to pay to attend seminars in Ghana’s capital city Accra in order to learn how to use the new technology. Furthermore, as powercuts in Ghana are frequent, much of the equipment is unsuitable for use in locations where electrical currents and even the supply of electricity are unreliable.

A radiography programme in Ghana really is a great opportunity to gain experience you couldn’t have hoped for at home.

Medical Outreach Programme

If your time with us in Ghana permits, we will also arrange for you to attend a medical outreach project. We often take teams of local medics and volunteers to rural village communities outside Cape Coast and to local orphanages and schools to help with health programmes.

Regular outreach projects include inoculation programmes or just health checks, with an opportunity for those in rural communities without access to primary care to come and visit medics for a check up or to discuss any medical problems that they might have.

Accommodation on this project is in our group accommodation, usually sharing with others. You will be joined in Ghana by others on our medical, teaching, media and business projects.
