AMSA-Maranatha Christian University
AMSA Maranatha Christian University (AMSA-MCU) was found in 1996, when the Chief of Academic, Research, and Development of Student Council of Faculty of Medicine Maranatha Christian University (had not been divided into various divisions as it is now so that all of the divisions have one organizational name), dr. Adrian Suhendra was invited to attend the AMSA-Indonesia founding meeting in Yogyakarta. He asked one of his colleagues, dr. Stanley Kirana, Sp. B to become a Vice Representative and Founding Father. Eventually, AMSA-MCU was inaugurated in the same year, according to the Student Council of Faculty of Medicine Maranatha Christian University’s by-laws.

Along with the inauguration of AMSA-Indonesia in Yogyakarta, AMSA-MCU was established on 10th August 1996 by dr. Adrian Suhendra, Sp.PK, a batch of 1993 Faculty of Medicine Maranatha Christian University. A few months after AMSA-MCU was found, this organization was assigned as a part of External Divisions of the Student Council of Faculty of Medicine Maranatha Christian University. Even though AMSA-MCU still had no other members, dr. Adrian and dr. Stanley had already active in national and international events for one tenure. For the first time, AMSA-MCU became a delegate of the Asian Medical Students’ Conference (AMSC) in 1998. In the second year of dr. Adrian’s tenure, AMSA-MCU kept growing and developing with 10 members. However, had not been divided into various divisions and the Executive Board had not been formed.
Over time, AMSA-MCU became more active in carrying out its role as a member of AMSA-Indonesia, such as sending delegations, publishing health days, and major days in Indonesia and the world. A concrete example of AMSA-MCU’s participation for AMSA-Indonesia was to host National Leadership Training in 2016 tenure when Hanifan was a Representative and the host of the National Action Event (NAE) under the tenure of Moses Arky as Representative. AMSA-MCU began to show its identity by involving its members to develop and learn as a bridge to connecting AMSA-universities and AMSA-Indonesia through the National Team in 2015, with the elected representatives of Finance and AMSEP officer candidates, Academic Team, Research Team, and Top 12 Finalist Ambassador of Public Health (APH).
In 2016, for the first time, AMSA-MCU represented its district with the selected APH from AMSA-MCU. Not only active in AMSA-Indonesia, but AMSA-MCU is also active in participating in every event held by its district, sort of event that made by APH and AMSA Elite Chair Person (AEC). AMSA-MCU was more known by other AMSA faculty when it selected to be a host for NAE back in 2019 when it can involving a non-AMSA member in its committee. This is proven by the increasing interest in prospective AMSA-MCU members in 2020 under the tenure of Ghina Nisrina as Representative, which doubled from the previous year. Now, AMSA-MCU has become an AMSA-university that is fully developing in line with the progress of AMSA-Indonesia.
