Background: A professional recognition system is defined as a quality assured process that recognises an individual's achievement of the completion of knowledge and skills in a particular area or stage of practice. There is an increased interest in professional recognition system development worldwide. Objective: This study aims to explore perceptions from practising pharmacists regarding their interests, perceived benefits and methods of the professional recognition system. Methods: Forty-three pharmacists participated in interviews or group discussions. The topic guide includes questions on (1) pharmacists interest, (2) the perceived benefits, and (3) the method of implementing the professional recognition system. The transcriptions were analysed thematically. Results: Participants showed an interest in developing a professional recognition system in Indonesia. A system where pharmacists could be recognised socially and financially would motivate pharmacists to advance in their practice. This system would increase the recognition of pharmacists to other health professionals and to society. A combination of several methods was recommended in order to support a credible and transparent system, for example, through a combination of peer review and portfolio. Conclusion: In general, the professional recognition system was perceived to be beneficial for pharmacists, other stakeholders, society and the profession. A national transparent, credible and flexible method that is adaptable to the workplace is recommended.
