Finally, they will be shown some documents and old books that are fundamental to the historical memory of our centuries-old institutions.
Since the time of Dr. José Eleuterio González, in the second half of the nineteenth century, through the administration of Dr. Eduardo Aguirre Small, in the first of the twentieth century, museums have been a key element in strengthening medical education, promoting values and identity of future doctors and, of course, preserve and disseminate the cultural and scientific heritage of our Alma Mater.
