Abstract

Regulation of the Minister of Health No. 3 of 2020 on Hospital Classification stated the classification of a
hospital is no longer based on the number of specialist and subspecialty services as in the previous provisions,
but rather emphasizes the number of beds. However, type B hospitals’ problem is not the number of beds, but
the lack of complete facilities, the availability of human resources such as the need for specialist doctors and
the unequal distribution of type B hospitals at the regional level. This research aims to find out programs to
fulfil the needs for specialist doctors in developing type B hospitals at the regional level. The results showed
that the program to fulfil the needs for specialist doctors of type B hospital in the region could be as shortterm, medium-term and long-term programs. Specialist doctor education scholarship programs are a better
solution to fulfil type B hospitals’ needs at the regional level. Thus, the fulfilment of the need for specialist
doctors will improve the quality of health services.
