Story Behind The Picture
The Department of Surgery Faculty of Medicine Universitas Gadjah Mada commits to deliver the best practice in the health surgery care.In collaboration with other departments particularly the Department of Pediatric, we recently have successfully performed the first liver transplant at Dr Sardjito hospital.
Department of Surgery Universitas Gadjah Mada has been established in 1949 in the same year with the establishment of Universitas Gadjah Mada. In 1950, Department of Surgery has initiated teaching activities for two students, carried out by Prof.dr. Moch Salim. Since its establishment, the Department of Surgery has grown rapidly during the past few years. The Department of Surgery has emerged as one of the most prominent surgical training program in Indonesia offering extensive programs of specialization and sub-specialization including in Digestive Surgery, Oncology Surgery, Orthopedic and Traumatology, Pediatric Surgery, Neurosurgery, Urology, Thorax and Vascular Surgery, and Plastic Surgery. Residency training programs are coordinated within several subdivision including General Surgery, Orthopedics, Urology, Neurosurgery, and Pediatric Surgery. The Department of Surgery continues to excel and make major contributions to the University and Indonesia.
A significant contribution was also made by this Department in the disaster management since 1990. We actively participated during tsunami in Aceh in 2004, Yogyakarta earthquake in 2006, Merapi eruption in 1994, 2006 and 2010, as well as other national disasters. In addition to deliver excellent care to patients, we have also contributed to the rapidly changing healthcare system in Indonesia.
The recent advance in 2015 was the first successful liver transplant performed at Dr.Sardjito Hospital. We also offer great quality of teaching for both MD and residency. Our residency program is one of the most competitive in Indonesia. Most of these residencies are filled with top rank applicants. The first two years of training in surgery is elaborated as Surgical Foundation with lecture preparation and basic skill development to prepare for national exam for basic surgery. In the national level, our residents have shown their quality. In the national exam for general surgery in 2015, our resident has achieved the best score among other participants. In 2014, we received award as the best oral presentation in Indonesian College of Surgeons meeting in Bali and the following year in 2015, two orthopedics residents have been selected as the best and the third best oral presenters at the national orthopedic meeting in Bandung. The academic year 2015 has been very
busy and productive for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. Annual seminar by Subdivision Orthopedics has been very successful with significant participants from general practitioners as well as potential orthopedic resident. Surgery training for MD students as compulsory program has been excelled with help from regional hospitals and elective program in 2015 has been successfully completed by some international students from the Netherlands, Germany, South Africa, and Canada.
The Department of Surgery also endorses multidisciplinary care in collaboration with heart, vascular, digestive health care, transplantation, and oncology that can promote greater collaboration among specialists across disciplines and departments.
