Interprofessionalism encompasses teamwork, knowledge construction, open dialogue, and respect among the peculiarities related to professional practice. This study consists of a systematic review, structured by the P.V.O. is does Primary Health Care (V - variable), favor the development of interprofessionalism (O - outcomes), during the training of higher education health students (P - population). We used searches of the PubMed (United States National Library of Medicine Service) and SciELO (Scientific Electronic Library Online) databases with descriptors from the DeCS (Descriptors in Health Sciences) and MeSH (Medical Subject Headings) platforms. The Medical Education Research Study Quality Instrument (MERSQI) was used to assess risk of bias and quality. After reading and analyzing the 15 selected articles, three categories emerged: "The dimensions of interprofessionalism in the strengthening of Primary Health Care"; "Interprofessionalism and the teaching-learning process in health"; "Perspectives for interprofessional training in higher education: challenges in implementation and possible solutions". Primary Health Care favors the development of interprofessionalism in many countries, especially in Brazil. However, it is up to the academic staff to use this strategy to advance interprofessional competencies in health education. It is indicated that more didactic-pedagogical resources on interprofessional education be developed and implemented, in such a way that Primary Care is the focal point for the development of interprofessionalism.
