The first candidate who conveyed his vision and mission was Dr. dr. Karyono Mintaroem SpPA. He proclaimed in his presentation to deliver FK UB into International Recognition.

There are three areas inside them: recognition of education, recognition of research, medical education social responsibility (partnership), and corporate social responsibility. Recognition education that currently should be continued is the development based on international curriculum (WFME-education, ICN-nutrition, Cade-science of nursing). Recognition research such as by developing Central Biomedicine Lab. While this has been done SAA partnership with the Islamic University of Malang and Univ. Malahayati. "The successful development of medical education is also our success too," he said.
The second candidate is a professor of FK in physiology, Prof. Dr. dr. M Rasjad Indra MS who now serves as the head of Central Biomedicine Lab.
