It is the only state Faculty of Medicine in the province of West Nusa Tenggara. In the early years of its establishment, the Faculty of Medicine Universitas Udayana took an important role to foster the medical education in our faculty.

Most of the pre-clinical education for students takes place in the main campus, whereas clinical phase are conducted in West Nusa Tenggara Province General Hospital. Currently there are 423 students enrolled in this program. To date, there are 101 graduates that are distributed in various parts of West Nusa Tenggara.
