So, ALBA Medical School
was only open a short time according to the following article dated the first of December:
"To be sure, Venezuela isn’t retreating into a hole. Maduro last month ordered the creation of a medical university in Venezuela to turn out doctors from around Latin America. He’ll present the proposal at this month’s summit in Caracas of the Bolivarian Alliance of nine leftist nations that includes Bolivia, Cuba and Ecuador".
A comment in Nicaragua Dispatch alludes to the possibility that the students were pulled out by Nicaragua after complaining to Venezuela about lack of food and basic necessities.
These are touchy times as the wheels fall off the ALBA bus :)
