Message from the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Airlangga

Faculty of Medicine Universitas Airlangga (FK UNAIR) is the 2nd oldest Faculty of Medicine in Indonesia. Currently, FK UNAIR is 108 years old since it was founded as Nederlandsch-Indische Artsen School (NIAS) in 1913. FK UNAIR has started a long journey to transform knowledge in medical science and devote knowledge to improve the welfare of the nation, society, and humanity.


At present, FK UNAIR has 19 Units, 28 Departments, and 43 Study Programs covering Bachelor, Master, Specialist, Subspecialist, and Doctoral levels. The forty-three study programs include two undergraduate programs (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Midwifery), two professional programs (Medical Education Profession and Midwifery Education Profession), five master’s programs (Reproductive Health Sciences, Sports Medicine Sciences, Basic Medical Sciences, Clinical Medical Sciences, and Tropical Medicine), thirty-one Specialization programs/ Sp1, eight Subspecialties/ Sp2 programs (Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Digestive Surgery, Head & Neck Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, Clinical Pathology, and Anesthesiology & Intensive Therapy), and one doctoral program/S3 Medical Sciences.


During the 2020-2025 period, FK UNAIR has the vision to become an independent, innovative, leading Faculty of Medicine at the national and international levels, a pioneer in the development of medical science and technology, entrepreneurship and humanities-based on religious morals. In order to realize this vision, there is a Program and Action plan called The PRIME FK UNAIR, covering a Professional and student-centred curriculum, Responsive and accessible management system & public problems, Innovation based on education and research, Modern Learning Ecosystem, and Entrepreneurship building program.


FK UNAIR continues to improve the quality of education by implementing a rigorous and accredited internal academic quality audit both nationally (LAMPT-Kes) and internationally. Currently, 35 Study Programs in FK UNAIR have been accredited by LAMPT-Kes with the predicate of Excellence, and the rest are accredited as Good and are new study programs. In addition, there are twelve study programs that have been internationally accredited by ASIIN (Akkreditierung Sagentur fur Studiengange der Ingenieurwissenschaften der Informatik, der Naturwissenschafter und der Mathematik) from Germany. In addition, FK UNAIR has two AUN-certified Study Programs (ASEAN University Network) and two LAMPT-Kes accredited Study Programs with WFME (World Federation of Medical Education) recognition.


In addition to improving the quality of the Tri Dharma of Higher Education and managerial governance, FK UNAIR also strengthens cooperation networks with various parties both at home and abroad. FK UNAIR has had 77 Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) with national institutions and 29 MoUs with international institutions from Asia, Europe, Africa, America, and Australia. This collaboration is fostered through the exchange of lecturers and students, research collaborations, and opportunities to continue higher education for the academic community of the Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Airlangga.


We hope that this website can provide comprehensive information about FK UNAIR, especially on Education, Research, and Community Service activities, programs offered, health information, and other helpful information, both for academics to the general public.
