Family medicine approach is the competence that must be mastered by the medical student. But in reality, family medicine is a topic that is less in demand by students. Students are more interested in basic and clinical medical science, or students do not yet understand the application of this approach in medical practice. Therefore, lecturers need to improve in learning methods such as increasing learning activity to enhance the learning achievement of family medicine topics. The purpose of this study is to find increasing learning achievement by increasing learning activity in this subject. Research method in this study is quantitative descriptive with a cross-sectional approach. We use pre-test and post-test scores of 40 medical students who attended the family medicine class. The instrument used is a quiz question that amounts to 5 items in the form of vignette questions with MCQ options. Researchers analyzed data with the Wilcoxon test. The results of this study showed there was a significant difference in pre-test compared with post-test with p<0.01 (p=0.000). This study concludes that increasing learning activities can effectively increase medical students' scores on family medicine topics. It is needed to further research on other learning methods that can improve the achievement of student's learning related to this topic.
