Commitment to International Standard Education and Health

President University in Jababeka City recently launched a new faculty, namely the Faculty of Medicine located in Jababeka Medical City. Inaugurated in 2023, Jababeka Medical City is a 72-hectare health industrial area developed with WHO-standard infrastructure. This health area was built with the aim of accommodating expatriates and foreign tourists for treatment.

The President University Faculty of Medicine (FKPU) is led directly by Prof. Budi Setiabudiawan as the dean, with Prof. DR. Dr. Satyanegara, Sp.BS (K) serving as Chairman of the Board of Trustees or Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Faculty of Medicine.

Prof. Satya has high motivation in the health sector, so he wants to be more useful in order to create a healthy and productive Indonesian society, one of which is by utilizing biotechnology. “I feel proud to be part of FKPU, especially through the construction of a research hospital in Jababeka that uses modern biotechnology, of course, it will have a positive impact on public health and for FKPU students to have more value when they graduate. Unlike other FKs, FKPU has the best standards and support so I believe it can become the only leading education center and health center not only on a national scale but also internationally,” said Prof. Satyanegara.

As an international standard university, learning at FKPU is carried out bilingually to prepare prospective doctors who are more competent in serving foreign patients, expanding their communication skills, and improving the quality of medical services. In the first year, students get compulsory dormitory facilities such as medical faculties in America or Europe.

FKPU has also collaborated with leading universities in the United States and will continue to expand, FKPU also offers opportunities for students to continue their master’s programs there. This collaboration ensures global educational standards and encourages international academic exchanges. Meanwhile, given the relatively high or expensive cost of medical tuition for some people, FKPU provides scholarships to make advanced medical education more affordable for many people.

“We hope that FKPU can become a leading center for medical education and research, especially in the field of occupational health. In addition, the network of many companies around FKPU Jababeka can support occupational health as a center of excellence in the medical field and integrated health services in Indonesia, which is expected to be the pride of the nation,” explained Prof. Satyanegara.

“Prof. Satyanegara with a brilliant career and extensive background in medicine and academia, brings his rich experience to Jababeka Medical City through the presence of FKPU. The presence of FKPU in Jababeka City has its own attraction, because not many developers pay attention to the education and health aspects like we do,” added Ferry.
