Objective: To analyze the perceptions of health care professionals from a variety of fields (Anesthesia, Radiology, Gynecology, Surgery, and Orthopedics) on inter-professional socialization in a clinical setting to determine any potential disparities between educational training and to identify gaps.

Method: After obtaining ethical approval and informed consent, a cross-sectional study was conducted from April to June 2023 on 150 Healthcare professionals (Residents of Anesthesiology, Radiology, Gynaecology & Obstetrics, General Surgery and Orthopedics) working at CMH/PEMH. Consecutive non-probability sampling was utilized to collect the data. A close-ended questionnaire with interprofessional socialization and valuing scale was administered to the participants, providing proper instructions through hard copy and Google Forms. Data was analyzed by using SPSS version 25. Descriptive statistics were applied.

Results: Study results revealed that participants developed a recognition of the advantages of inter-professional collaboration with the highest score of valuing patient-centred care followed by self-perception of team responsibility and the lowest score of comfort in working with others.

Conclusion: This research gives a unique perspective on the experiences of health science professionals from various fields (Anesthesiology, Gynecology, Orthopedics, Radiology, and Surgery) in Interprofessional socialization.
