Midwifery for exchange students

In our midwifery education programme, we train our students to become critical, competent midwives who are socially engaged. Our students learn to take an advocacy role for the mother, the newborn, their family and their surrounding network by offering quality and personalised care. Within an international and evidence-based mindset, we prepare our future midwives for the profession in a complex reality.

The focus of the programme is promoting physiology, woman-centred care and developing a correct professional identity within a dynamic, metropolitan and international context.
