Medical Education and Midwifery Workforce Issues

Issue Summary

The government funds a number of programs that may provide funding for individuals in training to become a nurse-midwife.  This is important to many students, given the costs involved.  This page will provide detail on these programs.

Workforce issues are a related topic.  The demand for midwifery services is increasing, as the number of midwife attended births has been steadily growing over time.  To meet this demand, there must be a sufficient number of accredited educational programs, participation by preceptors, and interested students.
