Department of Medical Surgical Nursing is a new department in Faculty of Medicine UGM. Previously, this department was still a division when the Department of Nursing was established in 1998. The medical surgical nursing division was first integrated within the sub-department of emergency and critical nursing. However, since 2008 it became a separate division on Medical Surgical Nursing.
Currently, we have seven academic staff members with Master and PhD qualifications. Our teaching activities focus on the undergraduate program and master program in nursing with research embedded in all levels of education. We conduct research in priority areas, such as cancer care, long-term care, palliative care, chronic disease management and prevention, infection control, infectious disease and stroke. Through research and education, we make our best effort to improve clinical services. In 2015, we produced more than 10 publications,consisting of paper presentations, journals and textbooks. Continuing education to update our research skills is implemented through workshops and joint research, involving colleagues from Dr. Sardjito Hospital, UGM Hospital, Soeradji Tirtonegoro Hospital, and Banyumas district Hospital. Training and educational programs are also held for the purpose of community services, such as programs to improve the capacity of health cadres and residents in community on disease prevention, rehabilitation, and long-term care management.
International atmosphere in Nursing has been strengthened through collaborations with overseas institutions. Annually, we invite professors from Radboud University (The Netherlands), Anglia Ruskin University (United Kingdom) and NCKU (Taiwan). These collaborations are significant to boost our international research collaborations in palliative care, chronic care management and prevention, and other areas. International exposures also benefit students and academic staff through academic exchange, and international conference.
Starting from 2015, the department offers Master Program in Nursing, majoring in Medical Surgical Nursing. Our goal is to produce professional medical surgical nurse graduates, able to contribute to a better patient-centered care nursing services.
