As clinical faculty and a teaching practice, we believe in the importance of educating health care practitioners. Students are at the forefront of the latest research in our discipline as well as offer new insight and extra support for families and midwives alike.
Extensive clinical practice is an important component of the midwifery students' curriculum. The students complete a sequence of courses and clinical placements that develops their knowledge and skills in the areas of prenatal, labour and birth, and postpartum and newborn care. Midwifery students are required to work in a relationship with the family using evidenced-based approaches as well as informed choice and decision-making as a foundation for mutual trust and respect.
You may choose to participate in teaching our students and can invite them to participate in your care. If you have any questions about how students will be involved in your care, please discuss this with your midwives.
