FK-KMK UGM is known as the oldest Faculty of Medicine in Indonesia. The change of the Jakarta Medical College (PTK) to Klaten as the center for the pre-clinical section and Surakarta as the clinic section in 1946 marked a milestone in the establishment of the Faculty of Medicine UGM, which since 2017 has been named the Faculty of Medicine, Public Health, and Nursing (FK-KMK) UGM.

Since its inception, the faculty has adhered to the values of Pancasila, Struggle, Nationalism, Democracy, and Culture which have become the lifeblood of the institution in realizing the implementation of the Tri Dharma of higher education.
