Clinical Practice Environments

Clinical Practice Environments

Students will complete clinical placements with midwifery practices throughout Alberta and possibly other provinces. In these placements, students are placed under the supervision of a registered midwife and are given the opportunity to integrate and apply previously acquired knowledge to the clinical setting.

Additional placements in year three of the program allow for students to experience relevant clinical settings. An inter-professional hospital placement includes clinical experience with a labour-delivery hospital unit, a newborn intermediate or intensive care nursery, and with obstetricians.
