Radiography Placements in Mexico

Radiography Placements in Mexico

The radiography work experience projects in Mexico are based in Guadalajara at a number of partner hospitals, ranging from large multi-disciplinary hospitals to small rural clinics. Our main placement is at the Cruz Verde (Green Cross) Emergency Medicine clinic.

Unlike in the UK, medical provision in Mexico is not free. The Green Cross organisation provides hospital and medical services to those who are unable to afford it.

As an accident and emergency clinic, this placement can be busy and varied, with patients admitted for anything from road traffic accidents, to shootings or stabbings.

Although all our projects in Mexico include a basic Spanish course, it is useful if you have at least some basic Spanish before joining the medical project in Mexico. If you have no Spanish or are not confident that your Spanish is quite up to scratch we would recommend combining programmes and joining a teaching or orphanage project first. Alternatively, we are happy to recommend a good one week Spanish course. Many on our medical projects spend time helping in orphanages or schools in the afternoons. This is a great way to give something back to the community that is teaching you so much.

Optional rural outreach programme: The Huichol Project

We also have opportunities to spend part of your time delivering medical care in rural communities caring for the indigenous Huichol. The Huichol community predate the Spanish conquistadors and are located in isolated communities high in the Sierra Madre Mountains. On this project, you will have the opportunity to work alongside the community doctor as well as learn more about traditional indigenous medical practices. This placement is very different to life in the cities or even towns. You will live amongst the Huichol community in the mountains in very basic living conditions. Part of this additional programme includes learning Wixarika, the dialect spoken by the Huichol.

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