The aim is to examine problems precipitating the need for interprofessional education; discuss limited interprofessioanal education arrangements; methodology of an alternative model; underlying assumptions, implications, limitations, and strengths of the proposed model. Conceptual framework, contents, references, and other educational resources and techniques are presented and analyzed.
