Most seagulls will not even bother to learn but the basic rules of flying: like coming and going from beach to food. For most seagulls what matters is not to fly, but to eat But to this seagull, however, what matter was not to eat, but to fly. Above anything in the world Juan Salvador Gaviota loved to fly.” 

Richard Bach


With this Juan Salvador Gaviota’s quotes started the editorial of the first issue of the Archivos de Medicina Interna in March, 1979, written by its director Dr. Juan Carlos Bagattini, who, along with Dr. Alfredo Alvarez Rocha, Pablo Ambrosoni, Homero Bagnulo and Raquel Ponce de Leon, has the smart vision and the determined work to start this publication, to which years later diverse Professors of Clinics were added. Among those we can highlight Prof. Dr. Jorge Torres Calvete, Director of the Medical Clinic “C” from the Facultad de Medicina (Medical School-Udelar) who starts being in charge of the Direction of the Magazine in 1994. It is worth mentioning that Dr. Alfredo Alvarez Rocha, Juan Carlos Bagattini and Raquel Ponce de Leon achieved the highest academic posts as professor in the Facultad de Medicina (Medical School) as Professors Directors of the Medical Clinic and that Dr. Pablo Ambrosoni as Deputy Professor of Medical Clinic, and Dr. Homero Bagnulo is the Director of the Intensive Care Unit of the “Maciel” Hospital (MSP) and was the Honorary President of the National Resources Fund (MSP).
