The Birthwise Midwifery Program
The Birthwise midwifery program is an accredited, comprehensive program that has a classroom academic portion as well as a clinical/ experiential component. The Birthwise program is designed to be completed in 3 years for full time matriculating students. If a student enrolls part-time for any of the 6 semesters, or takes any leave of absence, it will extend their time at Birthwise, although the program must be completed within 6 years of initial enrollment. Birthwise offers two arrangements of its program: the Campus Program is a residential program that follows the typical academic calendar and the Community Program allows students to stay in their home communities for their clinical work interspersed with ten 2-week classroom sessions at the Birthwise facility during the 3-year program.
