Midwifery School
Traditional Midwifery
Academic Program

A two year distance learning academic program. MSTM's comprehensive midwifery curriculum incorporates MANA Core Competencies for midwifery and many of our students have passed the NARM CPM exam through the PEP application.

Submitted work and research projects are evaluated and progress is monitored through periodic closed book self-assessment work sheets. Various study sections integrate skills from NARM Form 201. Hands-on clinical and practical skills can be obtained through a preceptor, apprenticeship or midwifery skills workshops.

While the enrollment period is 2 years, students who devote greater time to their studies are often able to complete the program in less than 2 years. However, those students who find their personal schedules a bit more challenging may find that they need more than 2 years to complete the program and for those students MSTM offers affordable 6 month enrollment extensions. You do not have to be in an apprenticeship to enroll in the Traditional Midwifery program. However, investing your time in academic study and completing MSTM's in-depth midwifery program has the powerful potential to open doors of career and occupational opportunity in the future.

Many graduates from MSTM's Traditional Midwifery program find employment in a variety of settings, including private practice, birth centers, practice as CPM's, missions overseas, and much more.
