Maranatha Christian University, Indonesia, was founded on September 11, 1965 by the Christian scientific community in Bandung with the support of the Indonesia Christian Church and Pasundan Christian Church by the effort of the medical students of the Immanuel Christian Indonesian University. The university used to include only two faculties which were the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Psychology.


Faculty of Medicine[edit]

The students are awarded the degree of Medical Bachelor. Students attend lectures and do practical work in the pre-medical, pre-clinical, para-clinical and the clinical fields. To be recognized as a general practitioner, students must train in the teaching hospital.

The medical bachelor's degree curriculum takes four years (156 credits over eight semesters), while the profession degree requires another two years (49 credits over four semesters). Because of the organization of curriculum standards (called KIPDI) the 2006 admission of medical students have to carry out the competence based curriculum, which takes three years, while the professional degree requires another two years.

Immanuel Hospital is the prime teaching hospital. Immanuel has a polyclinic in each of the departments, plus a diagnostic center equipped with medical instruments used in ultrasonography, endoscopy, bronchoscopy, fuoroscopy, CT-scanning, lapparoscopic surgery and others.

There are other hospitals that are used as satellite hospitals such as Santo Yusuf Hospital, Doctor Salamun Hospital, Doctor Rotinsulu Lungs Hospital, Cisarua Mental Hospital, and also Cigugur Region State Hospital.

In this post-bachelor programme, students are trained to work in work settings such as general hospitals, mental hospitals, companies and educational institutions.
