As the oldest graduate programme in Biomedical Sciences in Indonesia, the MPBS FMUI has initiated the establishment of the Indonesian Consortium of Biomedical Sciences (KIBI) in 2015,  The MPBS curriculum was used as a benchmark to develop the national standardized core substances of curriculum for all Master’s programmes in biomedical sciences under the authorization of KIBI. In 2014, the Higher Education Curriculum of UI (KPT UI) formulated the competence-based curriculum which consists of main competences, supporting competences, and other competences. Since 2015, the MPBS FMUI transformed the curriculum from being content-based to a competence-based, and from teacher-centred to student-centred learning. The curriculum was also designed according to research-based learning which emphasizes student undertaking courses based on their research as described in the Healey’s Model (2005). In 2018, the MPBS FMUI implements the outcome-based curriculum in reference to KKNI Level 8  and SN DIKTI 2015 based on constructive alignment with the ELOs towards achieving the MPBS vision and mission. The MPBS 2018 curriculum has been legalized by UI Rector Decree No. 1764/SK/R/UI/2018.
