Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta (FKIK UMY) is an edu­ca­tional institution implementing study programs in medicine, dentistry, nur­sing, and pharmacy. The AHC concept is potentially applicable in Indonesia, espe­cially at FKIK UMY, to improve the quality of human resources to comply with the Competency Standard of Indonesian Doctors 2012 (SKDI 2012) and the WHO 5 star doctors.

Results:  FKIK UMY had implemented the AHC concept based on 4 aspects: (1) Or­­ga­­nizational (bureaucracy), (2) Policy (regulations), (3) Financial (financial support), (4) Resources (competent human resources and teaching hospital). The AHC concept was able to facilitate the role of FKIK UMY in implementing Tri­darma of higher education. FKIK UMY management, teaching hospital manage­ment, and the general health advisory council (MPKU), were expected to implement joint collaboration efforts to achieve Tridarma.
