Morelia, Michigan A group of 100 professors from Cuban medical science institutions who will work in the 55 Benito Juarez University of Social Welfare, which will open in 50 Mexican municipalities, arrived yesterday at Morelia International Airport in Michoacan.

Nelson Ocaña, deputy chief of mission at the Cuban Embassy in the country, was responsible for welcoming the doctors. There are currently 145 care schools in different parts of the republic.

However, the universities to be launched this year will give priority to the nursing and medical professions, given the serious medical care deficit in the country, it was reported.

In the case of Michoacán, 29 Cuban specialists are already working in different hospitals in the municipalities of Lázaro Cárdenas, Zamora, Ciudad Hidalgo, Zitacuaro, La Piedad and Uruapan. They are experts in oncology, nephrology, neurology, cardiology, rheumatology, gastroenterology, otolaryngology, angiology and vascular surgery.

The Minister of Health of Michoacán, Elías Torres Ibarra, announced the arrival of another 781 Cuban specialists who are expected to take care of rural areas.

He added that the most pressing demands are 91 doctors in internal medicine, 68 in obstetrics and gynecology, 66 anesthesiologists, 66 general surgeons, 56 pediatricians and 13 radiologists.

13,000 specialized doctors are needed across the country, but there are none due to mistakes in the plans of the government and universities, especially in light of the argument that doctors refuse to work in isolated and dangerous areas.

You have to bring doctors from wherever you can get to in the areas that require them, and Cuba has a good level of medical specialtiesElias Torres emphasized.
