On February 20th, 2020, the accreditation visitation activity began with a meeting of assessors, which was followed by a meeting of assessors with the Program Coordinator. During the meeting discussed several important topics such as educational objectives, curriculum, teaching methods, etc. Ahead of the meeting, there was also a direct question and answer session by the assessors and program coordinators. The third agenda was a meeting between the assessors and Resident on almost the same topic as the discussion with the program coordinator. The fourth agenda is visitation in teaching and learning institutions and laboratories. On this occasion, Anesthesiology and Intensive Therapy Specialist Program has prepared a Skill Lab located in the Anesthesiology and Reanimation building for the assessors to visit. In addition, other study programs also prepared their respective laboratories for assessors to visit.
The activity on the second day, on February 21st, 2020, began with a meeting between the assessors and the teaching staff. The meeting this time discussed curriculum, counseling and support for Resident, professors’ qualifications, etc. Towards the end of the event, it was closed with a final meeting between the assessors and the program coordinator to deliver the results of the accreditation visitation for 2 days. With gratitude, the implementation of the ASIIN accreditation visitation in cluster B. Each study program gets extraordinary experiences and expects to get the best results.
