In this time, the need of research, the development and the implementation of the result of research in health is increasing both from the researchers, the government, the academic even of from the public general. One of the ways to find out the health research trend is by topic modeling. The method that used in this research is topic modeling LDA (Latent Dirichlet Allocation) method. The purpose of this research is to identify how modeling topic method LDA analyze modeling topic to some health research in Indonesia by Sinta Journal and to know how the coherence value in each topic of the model that has been made. Besides, hopefully it can be used as a reference to do heath research in Indonesia based the topic that has been modeled. The development of this research uses Anaconda3 Python Programming Language Tools and utilizes the LDA library that provided to get the topic model. To examine the result of this research the respondent are medical worker, health researcher and academics. The result of this research the topic  modeling that used 94,1% respondent say very good and 5,9% say good.
