The objectives of this study are to validate an Indonesian version of the Chiba Interprofessional Competency Scale (CICS29) and measure the interprofessional competencies of undergraduate health-care students following their completion of an interprofessional education (IPE) course. This study used a cross-sectional design and was preceded by a cross translation of the instrument and a confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), which confirmed that the Indonesian-version CICS29 has good internal consistency comparable to the original model. The Indonesian version was then administered to 723 health-care students who had completed a community-based IPE course. Based on data gathered from 707 respondents (97.8%), it was found that their interprofessional competency was relatively good (mean score: 127.9 out of 145, 88.2%). The dental students scored consistently lower compared to students of other faculties, both in the overall CICS29 and all five of its subscales, three of which are specifically related to teamwork. The study has provided support for cross-cultural validity of undergraduate health-care students' interprofessional competency measures using CICS29. Further efforts are necessary to ensure that the students understand their roles and internalize the collaborative values and practices of all health professions.
