PEREZ ASSEF, Jorge José; ARMENTEROS CASTANEDA, Jan Karol  e  HERNANDEZ DE ORO, Luis Miguel. Avicena, the doctors' prince. Life, works and legacy for the contemporary medicine. Rev cubana med [online]. 2018, vol.57, n.1, pp.66-79. ISSN 0034-7523.

The history of the Medicine is directly related with the man's emergence. From the times of Hipócrates, before our era, when the uncertainty existed of defining it as art or science, there was not a doctor that gave to this so much truly investigative contribution, with scientific character as Avicena, unquestionable sage of the Middle Ages, of the centuries X and XI of the contemporary time. Its inheritance to the humanity was very important, particularly on Philosophy and Medicine, although it consolidated concepts and knowledge of practically all the areas of the knowledge. Their name ended up almost being synonymous of the own Medicine. Their monumental work contributed, without doubts, to the development and the sedimentation of the human civilization, transcending the frontiers of the time until the present. It was an admirable multifaceted man, but very especially an incomparable theoretical and practical doctor that with their clarity of ideas and with high scientific rigor, it "transferred" incredibly and in an extraordinary way until the current time. Their thought freshness, their reasoning, their scientific creativity of titanic force and an unique style, they were and they are still, fundamental elements for the expansion and the development of the universal science. In our means little information exists about the personality and so distinguished person's work, for which we carried out the following bibliographical review with the objective to deepen in these aspects of his life and to disclose them to the medical personnel in formation.

Palavras-chave : Avicena; history of the medieval medicine; arabic medicine.
