Interprofessional education (IPE) approach allows learners from different health professions viz. – medical, dental, nursing, physiotherapy, psychotherapy, psychology etc., learn from, learn with, and learn about, each other. The scope of learning depends upon the requirements and curriculum. Interprofessional education can help in creating a workforce that learns to perform collaborative practice thereby ensuring better health-care outcomes.

Strategies to incorporate IPE in regular curricula need to be debated and barriers associated with its implementation require to be identified. This review highlights the teaching-learning and assessment tools for IPE and discusses potential challenges in its implementation.
