This opportunity is in Northern Arizona where Hop and Navajo Nations meet. If you like the outdoors and are fascinated by Native culture, this assignment is for you. This is six-month gig doing general and non-invasive diagnostic radiology at the premiere Navajo medical facility. You will be working five minutes from Canyon de Chelly, one of the largest, and most significant archaeological preserves in the U.S. And if you are not fascinated by the 5,000 year habitation history of the park, you will be stunned by its red rock formations and wooded red -floored canyons. Meanwhile you will be within driving distance of five other National Parks including the Grand Canyon. You won't want to miss the Hubble Trading Post where Navajo and Hope traded wool blanket for pesh-tai, tokens they could use to buy other goods. It is essentially unchanged since 1883. More importantly you will be alieviating the health care shortage in one of the most underserved regions in the U.S. Navajo and Hope are 5-6 times more likely to suffer from debilitating chronic health conditions due to poor living conditions and lack of access to care
