Students’readiness for interprofessional education significantly differed bydepartment (p<0.01), mother's education level (p<0.01),willingness to take classes with students from other departments(p<0.01), and previous hospitalization (p=0.04).Conclusion: Health science students’ readiness forinterprofessional education was high. The readiness of studentswas affected by departments and some socio-demographiccharacteristics of students. Further qualitative and mixed-methodresearch should be conducted to provide more in-depth insight intothe reasons for these effects.
