Faculty of Medicine, Gadjah Mada University
Within our faculty, there are several state-of-the-art education programmes including undergraduate medicine, nutrition, nursing, midwifery interlinked with master and PhD level education, and numerous clinical specialization programmes. We invest a great deal of time, efforts and resources to maintain the cutting edge in education innovation. One method to achieve this is by implementing a problem-based learning continuum that begins the day the student enter our programmes and continues long after they graduate. In 2002, Faculty of Medicine opened its International Programme which created an opportunity for foreign and Indonesian students to study medicine with an international standard curriculum. This programme was begun in response to increasing global competition and international cooperation, and recognition of the new climate demands on the professionals of today and tomorrow.
Our expansive research activities are carried out by scientific community whom are also actively involved in teaching. Their work advances the understanding of health affecting millions of people. Studies range from basic biomedical investigations of nasopharyngeal carcinoma to analyses of health care decentralization. The faculty has consistently succeeded in attracting collaborating partners and funding agencies to support this myriad of research endeavors.
