Method: The study was based on five separate cross sectional surveys carried out in 200, 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011. Participants were 1696 students (733 males and 963 females) of Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Gadjah Mada (FM UGM). They were the Non- Problem Based Learning Curriculum (N-PBLC), the PBL Curriculum (PBL-C) and the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) batches. Data was collected through a self-administered questionnaire. Descriptive analysis was used to present the data.

Results: Cigarettes smoking topic had been delivered in FM UGM by several lectures (N-PBLC students) and blocks (the PBL-C and the CBC students). The amount of 40,6 % to 83,5 % students in 5 years surveys reported that they had been trained on subjects that discussed the cigarette smoking topic. Topics on how to help quit smoking reported lower (12,3%-50%) than topic of tobacco related diseases or tobacco and public health. The majority of students mentioned that doctors should ask and give advice or patient’ education (96,7 % - 99,8 %). More than 95 % of students stated that the teaching that addresses cigarette smoking related diseases is important to be taught and trained in medical school.
