 The WHO reported the importance of IPE (Interprofessional Education) in order to implement team-based medicine smoothly. Some Japanese medical educational institutes presented their IPE programs, which involved real patients, but most IPE programs used scenario-based or standardized patients. Moreover, few reports showed IPE programs for diabetic patient education. We created a new program, called the "Diabetes education class IPE" . Participants were 2 medical, 4 nursing, 4 pharmacy, and 3 dietician students. The students experienced the planning and management of and reflection on diabetes education classes. As a result of reflection, the "Diabetes education class IPE" was viewed as a useful IPE program.
