A descriptive cross-sectional design was utilized. Fourteen (14) speech-language pathologists (SLP) from DLSMHSI were selected using total enumeration sampling, where there were a total of 22 target participants composed of eight (8) full-time faculty members and 14 part-time faculty members. A survey questionnaire was used to obtain data regarding their exposure to interprofessional education (IPE) and training, clinical experience on interprofessional collaboration (IPC) and attitudes towards IPC. The qualitative data was analyzed using thematic analysis while quantitative data was analyzed using frequency, percentage, median and interquartile ranges. Results revealed that the SLP faculty members have sufficient experiences on IPC and positive attitude towards such practice. However, IPE and training can be strengthened to further improve their readiness towards IPC.
