Bachelor of Midwifery

In Alberta’s only midwifery degree program, students work with faculty and practicing midwives to blend theory with practice, providing care to childbearing people and their families.

This degree prepares you to become a primary care provider in the growing field of midwifery. 

In addition, graduates are prepared to write the Canadian Midwifery Registration Examination and become registered midwives.

Practicum experience requirements

Beginning in the second year of the program, you will be required to be on-call during your practicum experiences. 

This requires full-time commitment and means being available 24h per day, seven days per week. 

You may work for extended hours. 

You will practice at various placement sites, which may mean travelling and living outside the city. You will be required to drive in urban and rural areas day and night.

Clinical practice requirements

Requirements include immunization documentation, a Police Information Check with Vulnerable Sector Search, a personal vehicle and a valid driver’s licence. 

Starting in your second year, additional requirements such as N95 mask fit testing and CPR HCP must be completed and renewed on an ongoing basis.
