Interprofessional education (IPE) was introduced in Indonesia in 2011.1 The government, in this
case, the Ministry of Education and Culture through HPEQ (Health Professional Education
Quality), a unique program from the Directorate General of Higher Education in 2011, has
conducted several studies in preparation for the implementation of IPE, including
"Interprofessional Education in Health Science Education in Indonesia." However, the
implementation of IPE in Indonesia is still minimal. The basic principles of IPE are
collaboration, interaction, directed-group learning, reflective learning, applied learning, and
egalitarian equality between health professions in the learning process. IPE was introduced in
Indonesia in 2011 through HPEQ and is used as one of the operational principles of the LAMPTKes
accreditation agency. However, until now, IPE implementation in Indonesia is still at a
very early stage, limited, and tends to be sporadic depending on the capabilities and commitment
of existing institutions. Barriers to IPE implementation in Indonesia can be sourced from
institutional factors, teaching staff, students, curriculum, and socio-cultural factors.
