KKN is offered at three periods by the university, which fall on Gasal, Antar Semester and Genap periods.

As said before, KKN is held on three separate periods each academic year, the Gasal (from October to November), Genap (from March to April) and Antar Semester (from June to July). As KKN is held by DPkM, start date and end date for KKN is announced near start of semester. However, the rotation schedule was announced earlier (in general, in one stase after the rotation started). Thus, it is important to cross-check the rotation schedule with KKN date from DPkM as soon as the date is announced. The cross check can be done in Clinical Rotation Secretariat in Grha Wiyata 1st Floor. During the cross-check, there are possibility of re-adjustment of clinical rotation schedule.
