** Because of the nature of midwifery clinicals (delivery of babies), the clinical-clock hours are secondary to “numbers of experiences.”  The students must have an adequate number of experiences to substantiate basic competency in the midwifery skills.  This competency is determined by the clinical and didactic faculty using a clinical evaluation tool based on ACNM Core Competencies for Basic Midwifery Practice. (Credit hours in parenthesis are clinical credit hours).

 

Hybrid Distance Learning

While in the Shenandoah University Initiative Program you will take your core graduate courses at your home university and the midwifery courses at Shenandoah University. Through the hybrid distance method you will come to SU only one week in the Fall semester and one week in the Spring semester and the rest of the time you will be at your clinical site which can be at a birth center, hospital, clinic, homes, military facilities, etc.
