Become a Midwife
Now, more than ever, the world needs you to become a midwife. Studies by the World Health Organization and other international agencies show that skilled birth attendants can reduce newborn death by as much as 40%, offering a similarly positive impact on maternal mortality. Our Midwife Training Program, Advanced Internships, Midwifery Intensives and Midwifery School utilize service learning, integrating community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and improve access to maternal health services in high need areas.
We welcome students who are already on their path to become a Certified Professional Midwife or Nurse-Midwife, as well as those who know that they want to become a midwife but are still exploring their options.
Answer Your Calling
We do more than just train midwives. Our Global Midwife Training Program, Advanced Internships, Midwifery Intensives and 3-Year Midwifery School provide a challenging environment intended to influence the way student midwives see themselves and their role in the communities they serve. Through our service learning model, which includes a combination of clinical rotations, book study, reflection and community projects, students will develop the skills necessary to become the future leaders of positive change in maternity care.
