Interprofessional education is a vital part of medical education, and students should not be permitted to exempt themselves from it. Physicians are part of a team, and the importance of teamwork will only increase as physician shortages continue and medical care becomes more complex. To learn to be good physicians in this emerging environment, students must appreciate the skills, strengths, and vocabularies of other professions. It is shortsighted to think that the best educators of future physicians can only be other physicians.
