The history of the founding of Faculty of Public Health begins with the establishment of Public Health Sciences Study Program, Faculty of Medicine, Andalas University (PSIKM FK UNAND) which was established in 2000 with the decree of Director General of Higher Education No. 400 / Dikti / Kep / 2000, dated 30 November 2000. The aim of the establishment was to produce nurses that are able to deal with problems of public health in the region of Central Sumatera in particular and Indonesia in general.

At its inception (academic year 2000/2001), Public Health Department was the only educational institution accommodating working diploma students in health (D3) in West Sumatra and its neighboring provinces (Riau, Jambi, Bengkulu). In 2006, the department (PSIKM) began to select its students through the National Student Admission System (SPMB). The number of students enrolled until the academic year 2010/2011 was up to 569 students, consisting of 370 high school graduates and 199 diploma graduates.

Due to a number of progress achieved by the Public Health Department since its first commencement and high interest of the community to study in the faculty, the Faculty of Medicine, as the parent of the faculty, pioneered by the Dean of The Faculty of Medicine,Dr. dr. Masrul, the former dean, Prof. Dr. Fadil Oenzil, and the vice deans of the Faculty of Medicine, the Public Health Department were triggered to make the department become an independent faculty. The trasformation of PSIKM become FKM was finally realized with the inauguration of the Faculty of Public Health by the Rector of Andalas University Andalas that time, Dr. Werry Darta Taifur, SE. MA, on Friday, July 13, 2012.
