Here you go. I used the wx.lib.GenBitmap, as events are not very robust 
with the standard wx.StaticBitmap.

#!/usr/bin/env python
import wx

import wx.lib.statbmp as statbmp

class MainFrame(wx.Frame):
     def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
         wx.Frame.__init__(self, *args, **kwargs)

         bmp = wx.Bitmap("Images/medtest.jpg")
         self.Image = statbmp.GenStaticBitmap(self, wx.ID_ANY, bmp)

         self.Image.Bind(wx.EVT_LEFT_DOWN, self.OnClick)

         S = wx.BoxSizer(wx.VERTICAL)
         S.Add(self.Image, 0)

     def OnClick(self, event):
         print "Image: was clicked at: %i, %i "%(event.GetX(), event.GetY())

class App(wx.App):
     def OnInit(self):
         frame = MainFrame(None, title= "wxWindowBitmap Test")
         return True

app = App(0)
