Medicine -- and when we speak about medicine we always include stomatology, that is, we include all of it within the line of the health of the nation -- medicine, we know, has changed greatly.
Since my immediate concern was with chewing rather than digesting I had rejected ‘stomatology’ at first sight.
There is also something there that is very interesting and very encouraging: The school is attended not only by medical and stomatology students, but also by students who are seeking a bachelor's degree in pharmacy -- a new career created by the revolution.
The clinic provides good quality stomatology services for children, youths, and adults.
This year approximately 5,700 new students will register in the schools of medicine and stomatology.
Of those, more than 21,000 are in medicine, 2,000 are in stomatology and 1,600 are in the nursing bachelors degree program.
There was one school of stomatology; now there are four.
We have a higher institute of medical sciences, with two schools of medicine and one of stomatology.
Today, about 5,000 medical and stomatology students are entering medical school.
Adjustments to the current study plan in the schools of medicine and stomatology have been incorporated, among them those referring to a greater bond between the student and patient, such as the practice of familiarization and modifications to the internship.
