The Anesthesiology Specialist Study Program (PS) before July 1, 1972 was the Anesthesiology section of the Department of Surgery FK Airlangga University/Dr. Soetomo. Upon returning dr. Karjadi Wirjoatmodjo from America, dr. Herlien H. Megawe from Sweden, and dr. Siti Chasnak Saleh from the Netherlands, attended Anesthesiology education, so the Department of Anesthesiology was established which was separate from the Department of Surgery. Until around 1985 the scope of work included Simpang Hospital and Dr. Soetomo (operating rooms are still separate: Surgery, Gynecology, Ophthalmic and ENT Operating Rooms). With the development of the field of surgery, the field of Anesthesiology is also following its development. This development led to a division in the science of Anesthesiology so that the fields of interest were Cardio-Vascular-anesthesia, Neuro-anesthesia, Pediatric-anesthesia, Obstetric-anesthesia, Orthopedic-anesthesia, trauma-emergency, and Anesthesia pain management for organ transplantation. Until it developed into the Education Study Program for Anesthesiology Specialist and Intensive Therapy, Faculty of Medicine, Airlangga University as it is today.
