Midwifery Website


The Midwifery Program prepares students to provide primary care for women and their families through pregnancy and up to the third month after birth. Midwives, although independent practitioners, work as part of the health care team. The four-year program combines broad-based knowledge and understanding in the humanities, and the social and bio-medical sciences.

Distributed Option in Midwifery Education

The Midwifery Education Program offers a distributed program involving a cohort of students at geographically separated sites. Students in the Island Cohort will be located in Victoria, BC, and students in the Fraser Cohort will be located in Surrey. Classrooms are provided at each site with classes additionally broadcast by teleconferencing for students attending clinical placements at a distance. Admissions, academic progression, academic regulations, degree requirements, and costs are the same regardless of cohort location.

Further information about program delivery and location for each cohort may be found on the Midwifery program’s admissions website.
