Qualitative analysis of data acquired through 10 semi-structured interviews illuminates specific perceptions of faculty from two disciplines, medicine and nursing, regarding interdisciplinary health professional education. Findings identify points of convergence and divergence between medical and nursing faculty in terms of their perceptions of the meaning of interdisciplinary, current interdisciplinary activities, expected outcomes of interdisciplinary education and requirements for and barriers to providing interdisciplinary education. Data are analyzed in terms of implications for institutionalizing the value of interdisciplinary education at a large, land-grant, research University where "providing interdisciplinary education opportunities" is one of six strategic priorities.
