Introduction: In health care setting, client reports higher level of satisfaction, better acceptance of care and improved health outcomes following treatment by a collaborative team. However, there might be some barriers for the healthcare professionals to collaborate well. Interprofessional education (IPE) can help to solve this situation by increase confidence, further understanding among profession and allows for better communication among and between professions. There is a crucial need of IPE, especially to the students. Methods/Contents: This cross-sectional study conducted among 228 IIUM students; nursing (n=85) and medical (n=143). The number of students determined through multistage sampling; stratified random sampling and simple random sampling to select sample from each year, with response rate of 100%. The Readiness for Interprofessional Learning Scale (RIPLS) Questionnaires and Potential Barriers developed from World Health Organization (2010 were used. Data was analysed by descriptive and bivariate; independent t test, ANOVAs test and Spearman correlation. Result (If appropriate): The result showed about 51.3% students were agreed that learning with other students will make more effective member of health and social care, 53.5% strongly agree that patient would ultimately benefit if students worked together and 55.3% strongly agree team working skills are vital for all health care students to learn. However, there were no relationship between demographic data and readiness of the students. The difference in duration of study was identified as the most potential barrier (86 %) among the students besides other differences such as academic requirement (60.5%), academic calendar (82.5%) and accommodation (52.2%). Discussion/Conclusion: The result showed that majority of nursing and medical students of IIUM are ready for the IPE. However, there are few potential barriers towards IPE among IIUM nursing and medical students were identified. Therefore, it is crucial need to expose and introduce IPE to the students and includes IPE into curriculum need to be considered.
