    This image (which is common in the rural populations of Peru and several countries), is of a “bodega” (little market) in Puerto Maldonado (a city in the middle of the Peruvian Amazon forest) prepared as a clinic. The bed for the examination of the patient is surrounded by boxes of beers. It is seen here how social inequalities and lack of opportunities influence directly the forgotten and poor people. Perhaps it is time to consider the theme of inequalities in medical careers, to work with all medical students, and their clinical practices in towns such as illustrated here.
