ABREU UGARTE, Jorge Eduardo; PADILLA LEONARD, Eulises  and  DELGADO CALZADO, Jorge. Colonel José Lázaro Martín Marrero and his link in Cuban military medicine. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2016, vol.45, n.3, pp.403-413. ISSN 0138-6557.

The origins of the Cuban military medicine are found in the early participation of the physicians in the fights by the independence from the Spanish colonialism. Once the Republic was established, some doctors of the Liberating Army integrated the first nuclei of what would be the initial draft of military health of the armed forces in its founding stage, which contributed to its subsequent development. To expand and deepen this topic, we present the results of a bibliographic review aimed at the study of one of the personalities of our military medicine. This is the doctor Colonel Jose Lazaro Martin Marrero, who played an important role in military health during the war of independence and later participated in significant events related to the further development of military medicine in Cuba. The results of the present study allow to point him out as a nexus that related different generations of military doctors.

Keywords : Martín Marrero; military medicine; military physician.
