Active partnership and strong collaborations have become inseparable parts of the Faculty of Medicine UGM, without which the progresses in education, research and community service would have not been achieved. Collaboration with national partners has been mostly linked with teaching program, particularly the undergraduate program in medicine and graduate program on residency training.
