A very high priority
should be put on bringing Donato
Perez Garcia MD 3, and his family, officially and permanently to
the United States. His IPT skills and knowledge are priceless, unique,
and irreplaceable, and can be put to best use here.
Including the experience of his
father and grandfather, Dr. Perez Garcia 3 represents more than
a century of cumulative IPT experience, more than 85 percent of the total
doctor-years of IPT practice. Dr. Perez Garcia 3 has the energy and motivation to
set up a large IPT clinical training program. It is now too late for
Dr. Perez Garcia y Bellon 2's IPT knowledge and experience to be passed on to other doctors
directly, but Dr. Perez Garcia 3 carries more of it than anyone else.
A faculty position for Dr. Perez Garcia 3
at a teaching hospital is clearly called for. Such
would enable him to work with medical students and other doctors, to treat many
patients in the US, and to be a consultant for the many medical and
pharmacological researchers and entrepreneurs who will become interested in IPT
and its spin-offs. He can help ensure that IPT treatment programs and
protocols are well designed, and can help define the IPT research agenda.
Wherever he is, that is where the core of a large IPT-focused biomedical
industry could form.
An ideal situation would be for
Dr. Perez Garcia to work in the San Francisco Bay Area, at
Stanford University Medical Center, UCSF, or both. Although there may soon
be fierce competition for him elsewhere in the US and in Europe, this
region would be his first choice. The Bay Area is one of the greatest
concentrations of intellectual, financial, and industrial resources, and would
be a perfect incubator for the world of IPT.
