Jadresic got his Doctorate in medicine and was a professor of medicine at the University of Chile, and then Dean of Medicine from 1968 to 1972. In September 1973, after the coup d'état, he was arrested and spent 51 days in the National Stadium of Chile, but was released with no charges but forced to leave the country. He spent his exile in the Royal Sussex Hospital in Hastings, England. When democracy was restored he returned to Chile, where he specialized in endocrinology at the University of Chile.
