New Medical Foundation of the University of Louvain
The Medical Foundation of the University of Louvain has decided to establish a new medical center on the Congo which will comprise (1) a hospital, principally for the natives, with two physicians in charge; (2) a research laboratory under the direction of a doctor of natural sciences, and (3) a training school for nurses. Later, a training school for medical assistants will be established. Since the cooperation of the resident missions is indispensable for the enlistment and the support of pupils, Kisantu has been chosen as the site for the new undertaking. The mission of Kisantu, which has been for thirty years in charge of Belgian Jesuits, has promised to aid the foundation. The association is certain of being able to send each year two or three young medical graduates to Kisantu to serve as assistants for one year.
