We proceed with the work of the bachelor Teodoro Díaz, introduced in 1942 to Dr. Heriberto Pieter: “French medicine was followed rhythmically and when a new auxiliary method of research and diagnosis was in vogue in Europe: the laboratory, the influence of this new weapon of science. The laboratory helped the clinic in France from the year 1863, when Jacomino was sent to Germany to study medical organizations and on his return to his homeland he praised in his report the progress and advantages of the German laboratory. In Santo Domingo, the influence of the laboratory began with the Dominican doctors who graduated in Paris during the decade from 1890 to 1900.
The North American college has made and is named to make nice progress; the medication there has its personal persona. That nice college is simply too near us and we should flip to it. His affect has begun to replicate on us. It started with the American invasion of our territory in 1914; time when our nation was militarily occupied by Yankee forces. They sanitized our nation so much and took some steps to modernize our hospitals.
The first Dominican to graduate from a Yankee college was Dr. Fanduiz, who returned at first of the present century; but it surely had no affect on our drugs. He has been adopted by different professionals who, again to our homeland, have introduced with them a slice of North American information. It will not be solely with the arrival of those docs that our professionals have come into contact with that faculty, but additionally by means of the considerable literature that, along with the French, regularly reaches us.
The different medical faculties in Europe have had little or no affect on us, virtually nothing. For a few of them the affect is zero. While it’s true that from right here they’ve gone to check in Germany, Vienna, Italy, England, and many others., however these professionals have been few in quantity and have had little affect on the course of Dominican medical concepts and practices.
The best affect, nobody escapes, has been and continues to be French, though currently the North American affect is making itself felt increasingly more and on the price it’s going, there is no such thing as a doubt that, within the not too distant future, it will likely be the Yankee college prevails amongst us. Without delving an excessive amount of into disquisitions, it’s simple to grasp that totally different ideas prevail within the French and North American faculties. In the French college, the scientific idea prevails above all issues in establishing the prognosis. The purposeful and non-anatomical idea additionally prevails in it within the classification of ailments.
The prevalence of the scientific idea within the French skilled makes them observe a deductive technique in the case of establishing the prognosis when confronted with different bodily, chemical or bacteriological means to which they need to resort to assist in the prognosis. This will not be how the North American proceeds: he typically follows an inductive technique and builds, in accordance with these information, the prognosis he was on the lookout for. The Frenchman clinically examines the affected person after which, if mandatory, resorts to different technique of investigation in accordance with what his conscience as a clinician dictates; The North American virtually systematically resorts to a sequence of bodily, chemical and bacteriological exams, giving excessive significance to the outcomes of those exams. So that in them the laboratory self-discipline prevails over the scientific idea, and lastly when it comes to therapeutics in addition they differ, as a result of whereas the French apply a rational therapeutic, the North American typically resorts to the usual therapeutic to which they’re very addicted. In our nation, the identical ideas of the French college are people who govern the conduct to be adopted by our docs: it’s the fruit they’ve acquired from such a smart college”.
In our analysis, the best influences are from Spanish, French and North American drugs.
