Abstract: Background interprofessional education provides students in health care courses with the opportunity to cooperate with students in other disciplines and help them receive training before entering the health care workforce. This study is helpful to select appropriate tools to distinguish the attitude differences of medical students towards interprofessional education. method. A cross-sectional study was conducted at a private university in Malaysia to explore the two scales (ripl and IEPS) and their psychometric characteristics. The study participants included students from four different occupations who had been exposed to IPE at least once or had not been exposed to IPE before. Consequence these two scales (ripl and IEP) have their own ability to detect the differences in students attitudes towards learningPE in their own way. However, the IEPS scale was able to detect differences within the gender, professions (both junior and senior students), and prior exposure to IPE. Conclusions. This study revealed that though both scales can be used to follow the impact of IPE in curricula, IEPS scale is more suitable than RIPLS to discriminate attitude differences among healthcare students. Educators may develop various strategies to observe students’ behaviours and perceptions qualitatively and conduct longitudinal study to assess the outcomes of including IPE in curricula.
