Faculty Of Dental Medicine Universitas Airlangga
I am getting more interested in this field. Moreover, I got a chance to study dentistry in Japan. From 2011 until 2015, I participated in International Dental Course, a program that gives an opportunity for students to complete the undergraduate study in Hiroshima University, Japan. This program implements a dual linguistic concept, in which all the lectures are given in both English and Japanese. In the final year of my program, I conducted a scientific research about micro-RNA in the bone, as part of my final thesis. By joining that program, I have learnt a lot of knowledge in dentistry, especially in developed country like Japan. Furthermore, I also had a chance to meet many friends from different countries, expanding my networks, and also experience the Japanese cultures. I feel so lucky to join that program. At the moment, I am doing professional program in dentistry in Universitas Airlangga Dental Hospital. I hope I could gain my skill and implement my knowledge as a professional dentist in the future.

The opportunity came when I had completed the first year at the Faculty of Dental Medicine, Universitas Airlangga. Four years of study at Hiroshima University, Japan, was a memorable experience. Together with friends from the University of Medicine and Pharmacy at Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), and the University of Health Science (Cambodia), I joined International Dental Course (IDC), which means completing the Bachelor Program in Dentistry at Hiroshima University, then returned to each country of origin to complete the professional program of dentistry. As the first batch of the program, we were given the mandate, because the success and sustainability of the program primarily depended on us. Meeting great people keep me motivated to achieve a dream and keep dreaming. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Faculty of Dental Medicine, Universitas Airlangga for these great opportunities. Hopefully broader network will be completed in the future.
