Cuban medical students get a dose of Cuban historyBreaking News
The Latin American School of Medical Sciences, on a sprawling former naval base on the outskirts of this capital, teaches its students medicine Cuban style. That means poking at cadavers, peering into aging microscopes and discussing the revolution that brought Fidel Castro to power 48 years ago.
Cuban-trained doctors must be able not only to diagnose an ulcer and treat hypertension but also to expound on the principles put forward by “el comandante.”
It was President Castro himself who in the late 1990s came up with the idea for this place, which gives potential doctors from throughout the Americas and Africa not just the A B C’s of medicine but also the basic philosophy behind offering good health care to the struggling masses.

Yes, dastardly these Cuban Marxis, Commie, Pig-Pinko's.
Just recently they sent an invasion force of 1,300 Dr's. and nurses to Vevezuela to give free medical care and training in exchange for oil.
Why can't these damned people be more like use, and build factories in Communist China, so more Americans can lose jobs. Darn, darn, darn.
