Radiography Placements in Tanzania

Radiography Placements in Tanzania

The radiography projects in Tanzania are based in regional hospitals in Arusha in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro! The hospitals act as referral centers to other health facilities in Arusha and Manyara regions so the cases you will see will be varied.

The hospitals we work with in Arsuha have only rudimentary equipment. CR and DR equipment are nonexistent, and so exposed films are taken to dark rooms to be processed. MRI and CT equipment is only found in hospitals in the Dar es Salaam.

Therefore, radiography in Arusha introduces you to new challenges (such as processing exposed films in dark rooms!) and at times can be frustrating. As medicine in Tanzania is operated on a ‘pay as you go’ basis and also because patients in the surrounding rural communities may not have access to medical care, patients present with pathologies far more advanced than you would have seen at home. The fee based system also means that at times you can may be frustrated when radiography isn’t consulted, because the patient can’t afford the fee for a simple X-ray.

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