DIAZ ROJAS, Pedro A y MORENO MONTANEZ, Magalys. Participation of collaborators from Holguín province in the formation of human resources during the international medical missions. Rev. cub. salud pública [online]. 2011, vol.37, n.3, pp. 276-287. ISSN 0864-3466. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0864-34662011000300009.
Taking as a basis the strategic ideas defined by Fidel about the formation and permanent preparation of the human capital in the field of healthcare, and the accelerated development of the Cuban medical cooperation, a historical account was made on the participation of medical collaborators from Holguin province in these tasks, particularly Cuban medical mission known as "Barrio Adentro" in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. This account addressed the post-graduate academic formation such as specialization, master´s courses and PhD´s courses and the foundations behind the development of the undergraduate education. The participation of collaborators from Holguin province supports the formation of human resources in the health care sector and shows the validity of the solidarity principle of the Cuban revolution and its workers.
