ABREU UGARTE, Jorge Eduardo  y  CRUZ GARCIA, María. Enrique Nunez de Villavicencio y Palomino, professor and colonel, pioneer of the Cuban military medical education. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2014, vol.43, n.3, pp.410-418. ISSN 0138-6557.

This paper underlined the contributions of Dr. Enrique Nunez de Villavicencio y Palomino (1872-1916), who was surgeon at the Cuban independence war of 1895 and had the military rank of medical colonel. He worked as university professor, conducted researches that supported the development of surgery and of the Cuban public health in Cuba and published a number of scientific papers. Dr Nunez was also Secretary of Health and Welfare and from his position, he encouraged the advance of the public health system in the country, As physician of the Liberating Army of Cuba, he kept his interest on science, even under war conditions., He was regarded as the first one in the submission of papers to scientific events and in the publication of articles with his research outcomes implemented in the military medicine practice. This genuine representative of the Cuban independence thinking is a paradigm for the Cuban health professionals, particularly those members of the Revolutionary Armed Forces medical services, and for the teaching staff as well.
