Volunteer Placements for Radiography in India - Global Medical Projects

Radiography Placements in India

Our radiography placements in India are based at large multi-specialty hospitals, a primary healthcare centre and a number of smaller specialist clinics in and around Trivandrum in the beautiful state of Kerala.

The large hospitals are private funded institutions but that does not mean that they are in any way elite. Although India has a small government funded medical system, this tends to be for the very poor in India, so most Indians attend private hospitals when seeking medical care.

The larger hospitals we work with appear to be modern and well equipped to the external observer. Radiography departments in our three core hospitals boast colour Doppler Ultrasound, Dual Slice Spiral CT and MRI equipment. The hospitals offer 24 hour radiology services and radiographers and radiologists at the hospitals regularly perform barium studies, CT Angiography, virtual bronchoscopy, CT guided FNAC / Biopsies and more.

Even though the departments are well equipped, attitudes to patients are very different. The departments are often very bleak and interpersonal skills neglected. These hospitals really value your input to this aspect of radiography in India and you can bring western attitudes to patient care to this placement. The ability to put a patient at ease while conducting technical procedures is of vital importance to a good radiographer and not only is this placement an opportunity to practice this, but it’s also an opportunity exchange ideas with Indian radiographers who are keen to learn about radiography practice in your home country.

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