The field of medicine has been regarded as one of the most complex fields requiring inputs from a number of stakeholders for a favorable outcome of a patient. Acknowledging this, it is the need of the hour to expose the medical students to the concept of inter-professional education (IPE) right from the initial stages of their career. The context to initiate IPE usually results whenever there is a desire to ameliorate health outcomes of the patients or to improve the health care delivery practices. At the same time, the time allocated for the electives after the completion of third professional year can also be utilized to run a complete module or training on any inter-professional course. In conclusion, an approach of inter-professional education is a must to ensure the delivery of effective and efficient health care, including the domains of enhancing patient safety through optimal utilization of the skills of each professional.
