The authors describe the University of Hawaii/University of Indonesia collaboration, which introduced the specialty of child psychiatry to Indonesia in the early 1970s via a specially designed program, based in Hawaii, for five jointly selected Indonesian psychiatrists. All five graduates remained in Indonesia to practice and establish their own training program, which has since trained all of the "newer generation," such that there are currently 40 child and adolescent psychiatrists in Indonesia. Since 2009, collaboration between the two institutions has been renewed and modernized through videoteleconferencing, jointly conducted with teaching sessions. The authors present this program as an example of a collaboration that developed the local workforce and that has utilized modern technology in international, bidirectionally beneficial education.
