Regarding the feasibility of establishing a new medical college located in Vigo coexisting with the historic center of Santiago, López noted that “it is logical, based on the registration data, that it is reasonable to retain one college for all regions of Galicia, taking advantage of the resources of the Galician health system and expanding the participation of professionals from all hospitals In training “.

The president of the University of Southern California also referred to the abolition of compensation for new places called -40 for Santiago against 2 in A Coruña, 3 in Ourense or 1 in Vigo, referring to the educational burden that hospitals in Santiago compared with other places, because “third, fourth and fifth year students also train In me there”, while in the rest of the cities there are students in the sixth year only.

“We will provide more teaching positions for Alvaro Conquero”
Antonio Lopezz noted that the university recently signed an agreement with Sergas “in which it is supposed to provide places for Vigo and for other hospitals”.But he explains that “for this we need qualified medical professionals to teach” at each of the centers. The Dean of Santiago noted that “we continue to progress to comply with all the agreements signed in that agreement.” Agreement, despite the fact that Vigo’s mayor called it a “temporary”, has a “permanent career” in the words of Antonio López.
The USC President added that based on the agreement signed between the three universities, “we have provided places for hospitals where there were no health sciences affiliates – teachers taking care of medical students – and we will continue to expand the provision of yards in Vigo and A Coruña.”
