With his sights set on establishing the 4% incentive for the entire medical class in the country, the current president of the College of Surgeons of Puerto Rico, Dr. Carlos Diaz Velez, and Dr. Alicia Feliberti Irizarry -current vice president-, face each other this Sunday in an election that tests the participation of doctors without the obligation of membership.

“We have already achieved that 8,135 colleagues, out of nine thousand or so, are supporting the Medical College even though membership is no longer mandatory,” Diaz Velez stated in an aside with The new dayfrom the voting center located at the College headquarters in San Juan.

Despite this, the current president defended the commitment of the medical field to the membership.
