The initiation of this collaboration was carried out in order to expand the cooperation network of teaching hospitals that would be targeted to fulfill the requirements for the opening of the Faculty of Medicine and the Undiknas Medical Study Program (Prodi). The hearing took place at the Denpasar Mayor’s Office, on Friday afternoon (19/08/2022).

The Undiknas delegation was received very kindly by the Mayor of Denpasar, I.G.N. Jaya Negara, S.E., who in fact is also the Undiknas extended family (read: alumni).
The Mayor of Denpasar gives his full support to the efforts that Undiknas will take to realize his big dream, having a General Medicine Study Program.
