For the second time in 2020 the Faculty of Medicine, University of Islam Malang won the First Taker with 100 percent of students passing the exam. This information was received by Unisma at the National Deans Forum throughout Indonesia a few days ago. In the forum, the results of the Medical Professional Program Student Competency Test were presented which were held four times a year.
In 2020, Faculty of Medicine of Unisma participated in the Medical Professional Program Student Competency Test twice, namely the February and August periods. The results are very encouraging. 100 percent of students passed the tests in both periods.
In February 2020, 32 students graduated and all of them passed the Medical Professional Program Student Competency Test. Likewise in August there were 39 students, all of whom also passed the the Medical Professional Program Student Competency Test. That means 100 percent of students pass in the First Taker and awarded twice in 2020.
The dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Rahma Triliana M.Kes, said that the success in First Taker is the evidence that the education process in the Faculty of Medicine of Unisma is getting better and more focused. Previously, Faculty of Medicine of Unisma achieved a passing rate of 87 percent.
“This is a blessing for us. This year we don’t have the burden of retakers to retake the competency exam. Although there can be counted on one hand only, “she said.
She further said that the number of First Takers and retakers determines the quality of a faculty. The more retakers, the less the quality of the learning process is. So that the Medical Professional Program Student Competency Test or the First Taker passing exam becomes one of the indicators of the success of an institution. “Institutional assessment is judged by accreditation, the Medical Professional Program Student Competency Test or First Taker and the ratio of lecturers,” she explained.
With the achievements of Faculty of Medicine of Unisma, Prof. Maskuri is increasingly not reluctant to continue to make new breakthroughs to improve the quality of education. According to him, Unisma’s performance in terms of physical appearance was convincing. Therefore, a good appearance needs to be balanced with good quality, good infrastructure, human resources for lecturers and management Including in terms of the concept of Independent Learning and Independent Campus.
The Faculty of Medicine of Unisma has its own way of modeling its education, which is diffrent from the others. The medical program at Unisma collaborates between intellectuality, rationality, skills and high spirituality.
“In the future, quality improvement will continue to be our main target so that Faculty of Medicine of Unisma graduates become qualified muslim doctors with good ethics, “he concluded.
