universitas gadjah mada, yogyakarta
jogjakarta-never ending asia
i think indonesia will always remain as a hot debate.... y indonesia, y y y?
now tat i have been in UGM for two months, i think i can speak up on behalf of the KuTpM batch that's currently studying medicine there. i am from KUTPM, batch 2005/6, medicine. under JPA.
1. medium=english (but some lecturers have a lousy grasp of English, and yes, i might graduate wif sucky english, but tat depends on myself, doesnt it?)
2. dangerous-not really. its just like KL, sometimes, i find it safer. reminder: i'm talking about jogja, not about indonesia in general.
3. university-well established, modern, well furnished, well organised. a million times better than the college i attended in Shah Alam.
4. quality? top notch. recognised by the Australian gov. there are students from diff countries.
5. lecturers@docs- very experienced. can communicate in English, although the older ones might have problems....
6. there won't be any lack of experiences as they let you have hands on experience as often as possible, and well, dead bodies is abundant (compared to Msia)
7. no spoon feeding here. d system used is called PBL(Problem Based Learning).
will i graduate as a good doctor? will i be competent in my field of work? will i be labeled as "made in indonesia"?
yes, everywhere i go, i will be labeled as "made in indonesia". whether i turn out to be a good or lousy doctor, tat depends on myself, not on where i graduated from.
for those who cant afford it, and really wans to be a doc, indonesia isnt tat bad. (heck, it took me 1 year ++ to say this, but it isnt as bad as u think)
feel free to ask questions about indonesia... =P
