Cuba Graduates Physicians Worldwide

Ciego de Avila, Cuba, Jul 23 (Prensa Latina) A group of 146 foreign students from 19 nations have graduated as physicians at the University of Medicine in this central Cuban province, who will strengthen the quality of life in their respective countries. Those graduates in Ciego de Avila, belonging to the project of the Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM), mostly come from Mexico, Peru, and Namibia, and to a lesser extent in other countries of Latin America, the Caribbean, and Africa.

Deci Lucano, one of the recently Peruvian graduates, told Prensa Latina that he expressed gratitude to the Cuban Revolution for the opportunity of having studied here, because “it trained me as a comprehensive and very humanistic physician.”

Rigoberto Nahuis, father of one of the graduates, stated that the Cuban government, with its historic leader Fidel Castro, had that brilliant idea to host in his country young people from other parts of the world, a gesture we will always remember.

About 600 Cuban students were graduated as doctors in Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, and Health Technology at the Jose Assef Medical University in Ciego de Avila this year, 80 of them received diplomas with honors.

The graduation was dedicated to the 60th anniversary of the attacks on the Moncada Garrison in Santiago de Cuba and the Carlos Manuel de Cespedes Garrison in Bayamo, to celebrate July 26.
