Argentinean doctor Ana Urueña, who graduated at the Latin American School, briefed the youths about the origin of the academic center which, she pointed out, is characterized by high scientific, humanistic and ethical level.
Undersecretary of University Policy at Argentina´s Education Ministry, Alberto Dibbern, told the new students that the Cuban school will give them the opportunity to become medical doctors in a health system that offers its services to all the people under equal terms.
Argentina´s Health Minister Graciela Ocaña thanked the Cuban people for their efforts and generosity towards other Latin American nations, despite the unfair US blockade of Cuba.
Meanwhile, Cuban ambassador to Buenos Aires, Aramis Fuente, said that the Latin American School of Medicine expresses the continuity of an initiative that dates back to 1961, when the Cuban people began to contribute to the formation of young professionals. Since that year up to date, over 50, 000 professionals from 80 countries have graduated in Cuba, he said.
