On October 04, 2021, for the celebration of the Peruvian Medicine Day in which the immolation of the Peruvian medical student and scientist Daniel Alcides Carrión is remembered for the sake of science and medicine, the San Fernando School of Medicine from the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos, invited prominent members of PAMS and the San Fernando´s Chapter to disseminate the work carried out in favor of the improvement of medical education and research for the School of Medicine.

Daniel Alcides Carrión was admitted to the San Fernando School of Medicine in April 1880, after the war with Chile and with the port of Callao blocked and at a time of much political and social turbulence.

Despite the hostile environment and existing limitations, he was able to carry out his research, which culminated in his death on October 5, 1885.
