Cuba to create International Orthopedics School
Cuba will create a school attached to the International Society of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology (SICOT), the fifth such center in the world.
That action, experts said, is an acknowledgment of Cuba's development in that field of medicine.
The school will be located at the Frank País Hospital, in Havana, and will contribute to promoting professional exchange with a score of SICOT member countries.
In addition to upgrading doctors' qualification, the center will also improve the teaching quality and rank of Cuban and foreign professors.
The announcement was made at the closing session of the International Congress on Orthopedics, held in Pinar del Río and attended by 300 delegates from 15 countries.
In addition to Havana, the SICOT has opened international schools in France, Spain, Great Britain and Belgium, where it is based.
