The main purpose of this research is to discuss different personality traits among medical and nursing students and to develop the current situations about academic learning for medical and nursing students in a university with a view to discussing the possibility of 'interprofessional learning' for medical and nursing education, and the future possibility of different health care within medical team members after graduation from the 'career roles' link. This research subjects are 245 first year medical and nursing students from a medical university. The research tool is 'Ly personality test' for measurement. This test has 130 questions and 12 scales divided into ABCDE five personality types. The research found that personality traits of nursing students and medical students are different in A (Average), D (Director) or E (Ecocentric) three types. Regarding the content of academic learning, the research found that for medical students the academic learning courses about leadership or management are limited. Although the personality trait of nursing students showed more tendency in leadership, nursing students play more coordinating and cooperative roles when they graduate and join the medical team. Therefore, it is necessary for nursing students to take more academic courses about communicative and cooperative skills.
