This longitudinal study aimed to ascertain former students' perceptions of and influences from a final-year pre-registration, rurally-located, clinically-based, 5-week interprofessional program on their subsequent work and career in the health professions. The study found that this work reports positive influences on subsequent careers among respondents who had previously participated as final-year students in the IPE  program, particularly with respect to interprofessional working, rural health, and contextual and cultural influences.
