The increasing arrival of people from different cultures poses a significant challenge to caretakers. We are required to go to great lengths to fulfil what is required of us and to provide care in increasing complex scenarios. This makes it necessary to enrich the practice of care using a holistic approach. It, hence, we are compelled to go deeper into the cross-cultural training of future caretakers. The aim of this article is to attempt to capture the perception that health science students have regarding the immigration phenomenon by describing and analysing 24 posters. A tentative look at the deep significance of the different images shows the existence of topics and stereotypes that characteristic to the image that the general Spanish population has on immigration, and which lies beyond the well intentioned purposes of the students.
