**Prepare for a challenging and rewarding professional career as a midwife**

The BMid (Hons) course at York is an equal blend of theory and practice and on completion, will equip you to be safe, clinically competent, reflective practitioners and leaders within contemporary midwifery, maternity, and healthcare. The course will prepare you for a challenging and rewarding professional career as a midwife.

The BMid (Hons) course offers you the opportunity to study both the ‘art’ and the ‘science’ of midwifery. This course will equip you to be a safe, clinically competent, reflective practitioner and leader within contemporary midwifery, maternity, and healthcare.

Alongside developing your understanding of the dynamic applied anatomy and physiology of pregnancy, childbirth and the postnatal period, you’ll gain the interpersonal skills you need to work with women, families and colleagues and provide compassionate care in a variety of social and cultural contexts. The course will meet the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) (2019) published standards for midwifery education which reflect the changes taking place in society and health care, and the implications these changes have for midwives.

Through a range of academic and practical modules you will gain skills and knowledge to enable you to provide holistic, family-centered care. With small cohorts, you’ll have all the support you need to progress through your course.

Right from the start of the course you’ll value the importance of family-centered care. You’ll work with a variety of people across a range of community and hospital settings during your clinical placements, giving you the opportunity to observe and participate in midwifery practices with different philosophies of management and care to enable you to promote best practice and develop a personal philosophy for midwifery.

The course is divided equally into theory and practice. You’ll work with our practice partners across the region throughout your course, experiencing a wide range of localities and practice settings. You’ll be supported and supervised by a clinical midwife, known as a Practice Assessor, in all of your placements.

Modules during your study will reflect the six domains set out by the Nursing and Midwifery Council:

- Being an accountable, autonomous, professional midwife;

- Safe and effective midwifery care: promoting and providing continuity of care and carer;

- Universal care for all women and newborn infants;

- Additional care for women and newborn infants with complications;

- Promoting excellence: the midwife as a colleague, scholar and leader;

- The midwife as skilled practitioner.

By the time you graduate, you’ll be ready to become a leader in contemporary midwifery.
