Industrial Medicine
Industrial medicine is better known as occupational health which is defined as an individual condition free from physical, mental, emotional or pain disorders caused by the work environment. Occupational health problems can occur to everyone, because work is a part of life and people need work as a source of income needed to meet the needs of themselves and their families. In the world of work, the implementation of occupational health efforts is required based on the concept of universal human rights. In Indonesia, this is regulated by laws and regulations and the economic principles of healthy, productive and prosperous workers, besides being the company's most valuable asset, can also prevent losses.
Malang City, Malang Regency, and Batu City (Malang Raya) are residential and industrial areas that are quite dense. The growth of small, medium and medium industries is very rapid in the last ten years. However, unfortunately, health problems in the working community and the people around the industry have not received enough attention from all of us. For this reason, the Faculty of Medicine, University of Muhammadiyah Malang, in accordance with its vision and mission, is determined to produce medical graduates who have competence in the field of industrial medicine, so that preventive, promotive, curative, and rehabilitative efforts can be applied in the work environment. The end result that is expected is that the working community and the community around the workplace can remain protected so that their productivity remains optimal.

The lecture materials and industrial medicine practices delivered at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Muhammadiyah Malang are as follows:
• Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) in the working community

In addition, lecturers are also required to carry out the Tridharma of Higher Education in accordance with the vision, mission and objectives of FK UMM, namely conducting research and community service in the field of industrial medicine.
Some of these activities include community service carried out in Klaseman, Karangbesuki village, Malang City. This area is a center for small and medium scale sanitation industry in Malang which has been running for a very long time, even starting before 1945. This industrial center produces various kinds of products made from cement and sand, such as flower pots, garden lamps, bathroom tubs. , garden chairs etc., and serve orders from local Malang Raya, as well as orders from outside the city.
Community services that have been carried out are the delivery of medical and health education in the fields of internal medicine, occupational health, skin and genitals, ENT, nerves, and will soon follow education in the fields of medicine and other health.
This activity also involves students to have early experience to see and observe how workers carry out industrial processes. In addition, students can see some of the health hazards that can be caused by the process, so that they can practice expressing opinions or input on things that can be improved in this process of the sanitary industry. From this input, it is hoped that it will prevent the occurrence of occupational diseases that can harm the productivity of the workers and the sanitation company.
