Department of Clinical Pathology
- History of the establishment of the Department of Clinical Pathology
The establishment of the Clinical Pathology Section of FKH UGM began with the establishment of the Veterinary Medical Chemistry Section (VMC) first by the Faculty Leaders after the Faculty of Medicine because it felt that it could stand alone. The VMC Section was established in September 1958 in Sekip Unit II, which had a Clinical Laboratory Science Sub-Section, occupying the lower floor of the south wing on the same floor as the Veterinary Obstetrics and Gynecology Section and the Chirurgy and Operations Section. Before the VMC Section was built, Biochemistry lectures and practicums were held together with the Life Chemistry Section at the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry in Ngasem under the guidance of Prof. Drs. Sardjono. Toxicology courses, practical classes, and clinical diagnosis are also taken care of by the Veterinary Medical Chemistry Section. Head of Section of Veterinary Medical Chemistry since its establishment (1958) until the Faculty of Veterinary and Animals Husbandry was separated into the Faculty of Veterinary and Faculty of Animal Husbandry (1969), chaired by Prof. DVM. Djoemantoro.
The organizational structure of the Veterinary Medical Chemistry Section has been filled with 11 people consisting of Section Heads and Assistants, each of which is one student assistant and two people. Analyst and Chemicalyst 1 person each. Laboratory orderlies two people and daily workers three people.
The Lecturer Staff in the VMC Section is Prof. DVM. Djoemantoro and DVM. Harmadji (moved to Faculty of Animal Science UGM), Soesanto Mangkoewidjojo M.Sc., DVM, Djoko Pranowo, DVM, Bambang Hariono, Ir. Supeno (mutation to Central Java Livestock Office), DVM. Sri Hartantyo and Wayan Tunas Artama, DVM. Student assistants who have worked in the Section are DVM. Made Sengaro (became a lecturer at the Udayana Veterinary Medicine Department), who received a doctorate from Australia and died in an accident in Bali, dr. Mangkoe Sitepu Buah Diken, DVM (worked in the Ministry of Agriculture), Haryono, DVM (worked in the Ministry of Health), Ir. Wayan Sumudhita, DVM, Pratiwi Trisunuwati (became a lecturer at the Faculty of Animal Science Universitas Brawijaya), Supartono, DVM (worked in the Clinical Pathology Department at Airlangga University), Sri Hartantyo, DVM (moved to the Reproductive and Veterinary Gynecology Department of FKH UGM) and Mukaryadi, BSc.
The history of the establishment of the Department of Clinical Pathology of FKH UGM cannot be separated from the holding of Clinical and Chemical Diagnostics courses in the mid-1950s, which was taken care of by the late DVM. Djoemantoro is also the pioneer of the Clinical Pathology Section. Before September 1958, both lectures and practicums of the Veterinary Medical Clinic were lectures and practicums of Biochemistry held together with the Life Chemistry Section at the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Dentistry in Ngasem under the leadership of Prof. Drs. Sardjono. Before the formation of the Veterinary Medical Chemistry Section, lectures and practicums for the Clinical Laboratory were organized by the Medical Science Section.
In 1965, the term Kliniko Kimia was used as a substitute for Chemical Diagnosis. At the beginning of its establishment, the Clinical Chemistry Laboratory occupied a room measuring ± 3X4 m with 2 practicum tables and simple chemicals (reagents) for doctoral students’ practice while clinical research practice for patients who came to UGM Veterinary Clinic. The Chemical Clinic Laboratory at that time occupied part of the room in the Veterinary Polyclinic in North Square, west of Pagelaran Keraton Yogyakarta. In September 1958, the Veterinary Medical Chemistry Section was established, including Veterinary Medical Chemistry (=Biochemistry) and Kliniko Chemistry courses. The Section has a Clinical Laboratory Animal Science Sub-Section.
The next Clinical Pathology Department teaches Clinical Pathology and Laboratory Animal Science (IHL) courses for D3 Animal Health students, S1 Programs and Veterinary Professions, and Masters and Veterinary Science Doctors.
The heads of the Clinical Laboratory, which later changed to the Clinical Pathology Section, were Prof. DVM. Soesanto Mangkoewidjojo, M.Sc., Ph.D., Prof. DVM. Bambang Hariono, Ph.D. and Dr. DVM. Edi Boedi Santosa, MP.
Lecturers still actively working until 2013 are Dr. DVM. Edi Boedi Santosa, M.P., M.Si., DVM. Christin Marganingsih Santosa, M.Si., Prof. Emer. DVM. Soesanto Mangkoewidjojo, M.Sc., Ph.D., Prof. DVM. Bambang Hariono, Ph.D. and Prof. Dr. DVM. Siti Isrina Oktavia Salasia. On July 1, 2013, Dr. DVM. Edi Boedi Santosa, MP., retired early. The administrative and laboratory staff are DVM. F. Sri Wiryaningsih (2014 moved rotation to the Administration Department, replaced by Wendro Nurhadi on February 1, 2015) and Supangat (2013 moved to the Administration Section). Yatimah assistant laboratory has been appointed to replace Supangat since 2013. Laboran FX. Kayat has long since retired (2004), and laboratory assistant Suyadi has also retired (2000).
- Unit Position
The Clinical Pathology Department is one of the 12 Sections in the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Universitas Gadjah Mada. This Section is one of the spearheads in a broad sense, organizing the teaching process in the Veterinary Medicine environment and UGM and outside UGM in general.
Clinical Pathology Vetherine is a field of science that studies diseases in animals. The Clinical Pathology Department oversees preparing veterinarians who study animal diseases, blood tests, body fluids, and other species from individual and population patients. Clinical Pathology is the embodiment of various disciplines, with subspecialties including sparing/coagulation, chemistry, cytology, urinanalysis, serology, toxicology, biopsy, endocrinology, microbiology, parasitology, immunology, and virology (Dodd, 1991; Anonymous 1996).
Students in the future can become experts in the field of Veterinary Clinical Pathology who have a fairly broad role: 1) academics, including teaching, research, and public service; 2) laboratory diagnosis, including interpretation of laboratory examination results, laboratory evaluation/examination of specimens, providing consultation services and guaranteeing examination control; 3) other industries support research involving the use of laboratory animals in the context of developing new drugs, to a drug or product manan and drug efficacy; 4) toxicology that is individual such as poisoning or environmental such as environmental pollution (Hall, 2000).
- Main Tasks and Functions
Following the Vision-Mission-Objectives of the Clinical Pathology Section, namely: armed with highly qualified and solid human resources (human resources) (Master, Doctoral and Professor education) supported by good infrastructure (building facilities and equipment that are increasingly modern) will lead to professionalism and high performance and prioritize a sense of unity and unity in serving Nusa and the Indonesian Nation. The Clinical Pathology Department has carried out activities in the last 1-2 years with all its problems within the scope of Higher Education Dharma.
