During the period 1944 -1962, the Rector of the University of Havana was a doctor/pediatrician: Dr. Clemente Inclán and Costa. He was considered one of the most important figures in the Cuban medicine, a solid pillar of the Cuban School of Pediatrics, an internationally prestigious doctor, and pride of the National Medicine.


A retrospective, historical study was carried out with the aim of describing the life and academic work of the illustrious figure of Dr. Inclán.
