Taipei Medical University Student


I was very fortunate to go to ATMA JAYA hospital in Jakarta, Indonesia. During the one-month period (12/17~1/18 includes one week vacation), I experienced the culture and history of Indonesia. I also got lots of information about the local medical university and hospital. Based on my request, the school planned a one-month course including four departments for me. The four departments are Internal Medicine, Neurology, Ophthalmology, and Public Health.


The first two weeks of internal medicine and neurology are the busiest. I saw the differences between the Indonesian and Taiwanese wards. Although the equipment and environment in Indonesia are less advanced, doctors use a very detailed physical examination to make up for this. What impressed me the most was a doctor used percussion to evaluate the volume of the heart and diagnose cardiomegaly. Even if the X-ray can get the same result, they choose to use the physical examination to confirm the diagnosis again. In a common disease, Indonesia is also different from Taiwan. I can clearly recognize that infectious disease in Indonesia is much more, such as dengue fever and tuberculosis. These diseases have been controlled to some extent in Taiwan. In contrast, the number of cancer patients is more in Taiwan because of the aging society. This made me understand that I need to enter the crowd and adapt my knowledge to local conditions.


The medical students at ATMA JAYA University also impressed me. These students are in the sixth grade. Because ATMA JAYA University Hospital is located in the Chinese district of Jakarta, the students are almost Chinese. They took me to many different local restaurants to experience food. They also explained a lot of Indonesian cultures. I learned that Indonesia is made up of many islands. Each island has a different ethnic group, so there are many differences in local eating habits. In addition, some students took me to buy traditional Indonesian clothes, batik. Batik is a formal garment in Indonesia, I often wear this dress to their hospital after that.


Among the four departments, my favorite is public health. I think the activities of this department can show the difference between Indonesia and Taiwan. During this week, I went to a local health center and participated in some activities. I and a medical student carried a vaccination box. Their staff took us to the poor community by motorcycles. We stayed in a small house all morning. I saw the staff of the health center to educate the locals about health. I also saw many women taking the baby for the vaccine. On another day, I and another medical student went to another poor community by motorcycles, too. We and many volunteers went to check the water storage container from house to house. Because the poor people in Jakarta cannot obtain water stable, the behavior of water storage was unavoidable. The risk of growth of cockroaches increased. Therefore, such inspections are necessary. These activities benefited me a lot.


After a month of clinical experience at ATMA JAYA Hospital in Indonesia, I think it is a very correct choice to go to Indonesia for clinical training. The things I got far exceed expectations. The new experience impressed me. These make me realize there are still many unknowns waiting for me to pursue.

One that firstly triggers me about studying abroad is the scholarship offered from Atma Jaya University for the Atma Jaya Student Award Finalists. Then, I signed up to Korea University International Winter Course. Taking courses abroad can make me live independently and learn about different lifestyles. And thanks to Atma Jaya University for making it happen! I wish I could maximize the invaluable time there.

I have a big interest in Korea and its culture for such a long time. Having the opportunity to visit the country and to study its culture with other international students is surely a once in a lifetime experience that I cannot miss. So I’m really thankful to Atma Jaya University for giving me this chance and I hope that I can give something in return for its development.

Saya suka Atma Jaya karena fasilitas, dosen, teman semuanya bagus. Khususnya, dosennya dekat dengan mahasiswa, jadi saya bisa belajar lebih santai daripada di Jepang. Kalau di Jepang, jauh berbeda dengan di Indonesia. Saya suka sekali berada di kelas Bahasa Indonesia, karena saya bisa belajar dengan teman-teman dari bermacam-macam negara, bukan hanya berteman dengan orang Indonesia saja tetapi dengan teman- teman dari negara lain. Oleh karena itu, saya juga bisa belajar bahasa Inggris dalam kehidupan di Indonesia. Walaupun ada kesulitan dalam kelas dan kehidupan disini, teman-teman selalu membantu saya. Oleh karena itu, saya senang sekali bisa belajar dan hidup di Indonesia. Saya mau mengucapkan terimakasih banyak kepada dosen dan teman-teman yang selalu membantu saya.

Franseda Award from Tilburg University


Great experience of a research fellowship at Atma Jaya University

Although located in the heart of Jakarta, Atma Jaya University is the right place to study for it is an oasis in the midst of the capital city’s crowd. After being awarded Research Fellowship scholarship from Frans Seda Foundation, I was fascinated in coming to Indonesia under the partnership between Tilburg University and Atma Jaya University. The research theme of this joint research was related to social movement and social, in which I found it quite relevant to the current situation in Indonesia’s society.

Firstly, I was introduced to a partner from the Faculty of Psychology of Atma Jaya University, Bapak Gatot Tamtama. The research fellowship scholarship itself was aimed at strengthening the relationship between both mentioned universities in particular and the relation between Dutch institution and Indonesian institution in general. The joint-research topic was decided upon the latest issue in Jakarta, the relocation project of Ciliwung River’s inhabitants. Due to different academic discipline, Bapak Gatot and I agreed to draw a line, which encloses two perspectives, Psychology and Cultural Studies. Overall, we both managed to collect important data during our fieldworks, although some limitations were found in the process of data collection.

Secondly, by the time I stepped my feet at this green campus; I was impressed by the friendly gesture of almost every university staff. They were so helpful to me and made sure that all the administration process were impeccably done so that I could make the most out from my research fellowship at Atma Jaya University. I should mention that the International Office of Atma Jaya University has given their best to help me out with all the international application process until when I finally got my student card. Moreover, I was honored to be able to meet the Dean of the Faculty of Psychology of Atma Jaya University, Ibu Murni, on my first visit. She was so humble, and thanks to her I got my own desk and computer so that I could work on my research there.

Lastly, my sincere thank to my joint-research supervisor, Prof. Bernadette Setiadi who has contributed the most in ensuring that this research fellowship worked out well. She has spared her time in answering all the questions by email even before I arrived in Indonesia. When I got there, I was helped out in terms of the content of my research, especially for the interview guidelines.

In sum, doing a research fellowship at Atma Jaya University has given me chance to dig in deeper into my research subject and to exchange knowledge with experts of social psychology. It was also a great opportunity for me to broaden my network with people in the academic fields.
