Cayetano Heredia University is a Private nonprofit university located in Lima, Peru. It was named in honor of Cayetano Heredia, one of the eminent Peruvian physicians of the 19th century; the university is overseen by a Board of Trustees and is not property of any private or state entity. It is considered one of the top medical schools in Perú, along the Faculty of Medicine "San Fernando" of National University of San Marcos), is one of the majors producers and publishers of scientific research in the country; the university was founded in 1961 by a group of professors and students from the school of medicine of the four-century-old National University of San Marcos in Lima. This group of students and professors expressed their strong disagreement with legislation, inspired by the APRA, a political party interested in the absolute control of the university system in the country; the legislation advocated the "co-government" of all the state universities by the so-called "student one-third" which would politicize the academic enterprise.
The dissenting group was led by Drs. Honorio Delgado and Alberto Hurtado, dean of the medical school at San Marcos; as their campaign to preserve academics failed, the 400 plus faculty members had no other option but to resign en masse, found the new medical school as a private non-profit academic institution. This occurred, in 1961 and the first classes commenced in April 1962; some have suggested that these events were the subject of "prior arrangements/agreements" which, in the political context of the time, would have been impossible. 47 years Cayetano Heredia and San Marcos are the most prestigious medical schools in Peru. The rectors of the university, since its foundation, are: Dr. Honorio Delgado Dr. Alberto Hurtado Dr. Carlos Monge Dr. Enrique Fernandez Dr. Alberto Cazorla Dr. Homero Silva Dr. Roger Guerra Garcia Dr. Carlos Vidal Layseca Dr. Ozwaldo Zegarra Dra.
