Undergraduate interprofessional education at the Linköping Faculty of Health Sciences--how it all started.

Author information

Department of Clinical Physiology, Faculty of Health Sciences, Linköping University, Sweden.


The Linköping Faculty of Health Sciences is a pioneer of interprofessional education (IPE) at the undergraduate level. It was started in 1986 in full scale with six health educations involved. The vision and how it became a reality is described as well as possible advantages and constraints. It is important to have one common pedagogic principle for all educations involved. Problem based learning was chosen and introduced during the initial study module (10 wks). Thereafter IPE comes back during the curricula with common seminars, study days and ward training. Since the start there have been several revisions of the IPE but the nucleus is still there after more than twenty years.
