The progress of medical and biological sciences in the nineteenth century, the impact of the work of Claude Bernard (1813-1878), Rudolf Virchow (1821-1902) Robert Koch (1843-1910), Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) and all the splendor of French medical schools, Vienna, Berlin and Edinburgh, was a stimulus for the creation of a medical school in the country.
