Visit of American Surgeons
March 16 we welcomed the American surgeons who arrived on the Van Dyck. During their five-day stay, the travelers visited the hospitals and attended operations performed by Drs. Arce, Finochietto, Ceballos, Valdés, Solé, San Martín, Copello, Medina and others. They made a hasty tour of the medical school, then beginning its annual courses. In the afternoon of March 17 a meeting was held at the medical school at which the visitors donned their gowns and caps. As the costume is not worn in this country, this lent a certain color to the ceremonies. Dr. F. H. Martin nominated Dr. M. Herrera Vegas as an honorary member of the college, and Dr. McDougall welcomed the nominee amid much applause. Then Dr. Young delivered a lecture on the advantages of peritoneal approach in prostatectomy, and Dr. Case spoke in Spanish on the use of radiology in postoperative treatment.
