There are approximately 38 midwifery education programs in the United States accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Midwifery Education (ACME). All ACME-accredited programs adhere to the core curriculum necessary for safe beginning practitioners of midwifery that are required for accreditation. Each individual program has its own admission requirements and offers different pathways and degrees. The information in the links below outlines the admission requirements, program structure, clinical opportunities and the financial aspects of the current ACME accredited midwifery education programs.
Although ACNM has worked hard to keep this information current, education programs are dynamic. ACME's webpage, www.midwife.org/acme will have the most up-to-date list of accredited programs. Prospective students should reference the original program website and/or contact the program director to verify that this information is still accurate.
