Midwifery - TR913
The first three years combine learning in university and clinical midwifery practice in the maternity hospitals and will take place during the academic year with the usual academic holidays. The final year will include a 36-week period of internship in midwifery practice.
The course is offered in partnership with two linked maternity care providers: The Coombe Women and Infants University Hospital and The Rotunda Hospital. Each midwifery student will be allocated all of their midwifery clinical placements throughout the four years at one of these maternity hospitals. You will begin your first midwifery clinical placement in November of the first year of the course. Before this placement you will have spent approximately one day per week experiencing midwifery practice with lecturers and midwives in the maternity hospitals. You will be required to complete clinical placements each year, which will consist of 30-35 hours (approximately) supernumerary practice per week in a practice setting. Midwifery students will also undertake other clinical placements, for example, mental health, medical and surgical. The final year will include a 36-week period of internship in clinical midwifery practice.
This course will provide you with the knowledge and skills to meet the needs of women and their families in an individualised, culturally sensitive manner.
