History

Pulmonology is a branch of medical science that developed in Indonesia since the Dutch colonial era. The development of this branch of science was pioneered by Indonesian doctors who were involved in the discovery and treatment of tuberculosis (TB). In around the 1930s, the Dutch East Indies government began efforts to eradicate pulmonary TB, which was prevalent in Indonesia. At that time there were already Indonesian doctors who had been produced from previous medical education. Some of them are trained to detect this disease by radiologists using doorlighting examinations or penetrating light examinations.

With the help of this doorlichting examination, a diagnosis of pulmonological tuberculosis can be made, so that treatment can begin. Furthermore, these doctors treat patients and monitor treatment clinically, laboratory and radiologically. With such a large number of patients, it is not surprising that these doctors quickly become very experienced so that after a few years they have acquired sufficient skills as expert doctors. They then called themselves Longarts or Pulmonology Doctors (long means pulmonology, arts means doctor).

In 1957, long artists from all over Indonesia gathered in Lawang, a city near Malang, East Java decided:

1. The science of lung disease (Pulmonology) must be developed as a branch of medical science like other branches of medical science.

2. Pulmonology is an independent branch of science in medical education institutions.

PS PDS Pulmonology and Respiratory Medicine FKUB is one of the study programs in the Specialist Department. In 1989, the Department/SMF of Pulmonary Diseases was formed with the first Head of Department/SMF being Dr.dr.Abiyoso Suyoso, SpP (K). In January 1998 with lecturer staff consisting of dr. Koentjahya, Sp.P, dr. Sandi Agung, Sp.P, dr. Nunuk Sri Muktiati, Sp.P and dr. Teguh Rahayu Sartono, Sp.P(K). The Faculty of Medicine through the Department/SMF of Lung Diseases, FKUB – RSSA has been able to organize a full Specialist Study Program in Lung Diseases. Then on July 30 1998, DIKTI issued a Decree regarding the Establishment of the FKUB Lung Disease Specialist I Doctoral Education Study Program, so that July 30 1998 was stated as the date of establishment of the Lung Disease Study Program – FKUB. On 17 December 2011 the Pulmonology and Respiratory Medicine Study Program received Accreditation B. On 27 January 2018 LAMPTKes stated that the Pulmonology and Respiratory Medicine Study Program was

Accredited A.
