Medicine in Mexico in the Twentieth Century (Part Two)

These conversations are part of our intangible or intangible heritage, where we understand the importance of human development in a country, state or community.

Dr. Noyola told us this: The medical school pioneered two phenomena that spread across the country. First, that in 1958 it became mandatory for students in the last year of the degree to undertake an internship in a hospital continuing in health institutions such as IMSS or ISSSTE.

The second phenomenon that set the standard was in the entrance exams, since 1960 began to be conducted in order to select those with the best chance of finishing the degree. That is, previously, a good number entered, but many of them left in the first year.

They realized that this was not their profession or that the preparation to enter the race was not enough to undertake those professional studies. In this way, it became the first school in the country to set entrance exams, thus raising the level of students’ learning and ability to work for a PotosĂ­ doctor.

All these characteristics achieved during the first half of the twentieth century allowed, during the second half, that Potosi’s medicine be among the best in the country, despite the fact that the size of the city, and therefore its economy, is less than others. Which has a larger budget, and therefore more complex equipment. However, Central Hospital has been at the forefront of various issues such as organ transplantation.

The above does not mean that its importance has diminished in the twenty-first century, in fact, it has extended to other types of transplants, such as kidney and liver, which indicates a very high medical level, as is the case with the wealth of heritage from San Luis Potosi.

Last Friday we were – like other officials in the government of Ricardo Gallardo Cardona – in several municipalities of San Luis Potosi, and we transferred their representation to the first reports of the various municipalities. In my case, I went to Coxcatlán, in Huasteca Potosina, where we checked the good work and good organization of the mayor, Roberto Cruz Hurtado, and the warmth of Huastecos.
