Introduction: The Unified Health System (SUS, in portuguese) presents, among its functions, the ordering of the training of human resources in the health area in the country. In order to systematize this, the National Curricular Guidelines (DCN) of the undergraduate health courses were instituted. Soon, the Institutions of Higher Education (IES) were instructed to train professionals to work in the SUS. Thus, it was advised that these courses developed activities focused on the field of collective health, focused mainly on Primary Health Care (APS). Objectives: To report on the experience of an interprofessional work experience in the Integrated Stage in Collective Health in a public IES in the state of Alagoas; To reflect on how training policies are being put into practice. Methods: 33 field diaries were analyzed by trainees. The internship had a workload of 4 hours per week, in which activities were planned, supervised and developed in an integrated way. Results: The internship took place in a Family Health Unit and Social Assistance Reference Center, with students from Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy. This period was initially marked by difficulties of interaction among the trainees, both in communication and in the elaboration of resources, but it was noticed that this is inherent in teamwork. The trainees acknowledged that the IES attends the DCN, contributing positively to its formation. Conclusion: It is important to maintain policies for training in APS, not only the Speech-Language Pathologist, because the interprofessional practice based on the DCN and the Organic Law of SUS provides a formation that pervades the individual sphere.
