Indonesia is an archipelago country that has a wide range of economic and social differences across the country. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to unprecedented challenges to multidimensional aspects of human life globally. This pandemic has also disrupted the education sector. Pharmacy education is no exception to the pandemic challenges. This manuscript overviews challenges and responses to the COVID-19 pandemic into the pharmacy education (initial education and pre-registration training) and pharmacy professions in Indonesia.
