Program details

Our BMid program offers a solid base in midwifery knowledge combined with a hands-on clinical practice, allowing you to apply your knowledge in real-life situations. With internationally recognized faculty and state-of-the-art facilities, you will have access to everything you need to succeed in this challenging, diverse and satisfying program.

Expected duration: 3 years (plus qualifying year)

Following a year of undergraduate studies (Year 1) in which students choose electives to fulfill the BMid pre-requisites required for admission, the three-year program gives students everything they need to succeed in this exciting field. This program is only offered on a full-time basis. You have up to six years to complete the program. The annual intake is six students in the Fall Term.

To increase inter-professional exposure and enrich the student learning experience, the program includes a collaborative learning exchange in the four midwifery clinical courses with the McMaster University Midwifery Education Program. This learning exchange will combine tutorial groups so UM faculty will have students from the McMaster program, allowing students to draw from the learning experiences of others in a larger cohort.

Meet with an advisor

Please book an advising appointment with a midwifery student advisor for more details about the program.
