In 1955 Djojo-bojo Foundation (with members team Boentaran M.D., and Atmadi Wreksoatmodjo M.D.) had an aspiration about establishing a new medical school at Semarang. But this effort was not really successful because of lack coordination between Head of Health Inspection with the Director of Hospital and Head of Department Health Semarang due to the political parties and status at that time. Even though there was a Hospital Medical Center in Semarang, which was quite representative to be a teaching hospital of a medical school.
In 1958, Heyder bin Heyder, M.D., and Soerarjo Darsono, M.D., met the Diponegoro University President, Mr. Soedarto, SH and delivered the idea of establishing a medical school, as Universitas Gadjah Mada medical students did their internship at Semarang General Hospital.
Universitas Diponegoro Foundation was established in 1959, with Faculty of Law, Faculty of Economics and Business, Faculty of Teaching and Education, also Faculty of Engineering. This fact led to the new idea of establishing a medical school.
During the Universitas Diponegoro Foundation meeting joint with the Universitas Diponegoro Senates in June 10, 1960, upon R. Atmadi Wreksoatmodjo M.D.’s idea, decided to establish a medical school of Universitas Diponegoro.
Establishment of a medical school committee was formed. The chair-person was Suyono Atmo, and secretary is Sri Widojati Notoprodjo, SH. Technical Committee was also formed, headed by Colonel R.

Since 1951, Semarang General Hospital Center was an affiliate teaching hospital for the internship of Universitas Gadjah Mada Medical School, especially Department of Child Health, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, also Department of Otolaryngology Head And Neck Surgery. Although the medical students examination was done in Yogyakarta, but at least the Semarang General Hospital was experienced in teaching medical students, especially in clinical internship.

Hospital director is appointed as the ex official Dean of Medicine, and begins to do the preparation, while Heyder bin Heyder, M.D., as the vice Dean of Medicine, and also secretary. Committee decides the Semarang General Hospital Medical Center is quite representative to be a teaching hospital. Committee approves the medical education curriculum of 6 years education proposed by Atmadi Wreksoatmodjo, M.D. Reckoning in the preclinical level education still needs time, the decision is still to open the higher level medical education. Information related to several senior medical students from Universitas Gadjah Mada Medical School who are ready to do exchange to Semarang In March 29, 1961, Heyder bin Heyder, M.D., and Soerarjo Darsono, M.D. met Prof. Soedjono Djoened Poesponegoro, Dean of Medicine, Universitas Indonesia Medical School, looking for suggestions and advices and assistance as the preparation to establish a medical school in Semarang. Prof. Soedjono recognized and understood the committee and local people’s aspiration, agreed that would give assistance (lecturers) from Universitas Indonesia Medical School, and realized in 1963.

Because Soepaat Soemosoedirdjo, M.D., who had just arrived from Klaten and had not recognized the procedural, Heyder bin Heyder, M.D. was assigned to carry out all activities.
The preparations done by R. Soerarjo Darsono, M.D., and Heyder bin Heyder, M.D., had negotiation with chairpersons of Universitas Gadjah Mada Medical School Yogyakarta and higher medical students of UGM.
