Aim: To present perception of orthodontic faculty as a part of broader needs assessment for designing competency-based interprofessional educational (IPE) model for postgraduates in orthodontics. Methods: A cross-sectional survey was formulated consisting of 12 close- and two open-ended questions to identify profession specific and interprofessional curricular gap in orthodontics using Kwick surveys software and sent to the experts from the orthodontic faculty. Results: The response rate was 51.25%. 69.8% faculty were unaware of the basic concept of IPE, while 76.74% were unaware of interprofessional core competencies. 95.3% perceived that team-working skills are essential for postgraduates, while 88.4% faculty thought that postgraduates require training in interprofessional competencies to provide collaborative care. 79.1% agreed that orthodontic postgraduate curriculum needs modification. Ninety-three percent faculty felt that IPE will result in improved communication between health professional students and patients. 83.7% faculty agreed that there is a need to assess the current quality of collaborative care provided by postgraduates to the patients. 95.3% agreed that patient's optimum well-being lies in interprofessional collaborative care offered by different health professionals and that faculty should be trained to deliver IPE. In response to open-ended questions, the faculty suggested different topics under IPE to be included in postgraduate syllabus and cited faculty resistance, overcrowded curriculum, time constraints, and lack of infrastructure to be the main challenges in implementing IPE. Conclusion: This study has given us insight regarding the need for developing a new interprofessional educational model in the specialty of orthodontics from the orthodontic faculty's point of view.
