In view of the patient queues at the door of the hospital, we could use the support of medical assistants. On the last Friday – before the departure to Canada, Dr. John spoke to 10 junior medical assistants who are currently being trained at the Peruvian University Cayetano Heredia to become general practitioners. Gynaecologist Dr. Jens Haßfeld had suggested and prepared this meeting.
Since junior medical assistants are missing across the country, a partnership with Cayetano Heredia would be a true breakthrough. Negotiations with the University of San Marcos, with the same goal, were unsuccessful four years ago.
