In the Graduate Diploma of Midwifery, a significantly high proportion of ‘hands-on’ professional
practice includes quality experience with you as a part of the midwifery healthcare team. A variety
of placements include public and private settings in both the city and rural areas, from large teaching
hospitals to small healthcare centres. This quality professional practice experience enables graduates
to be confident, competent and able to adapt quickly to the midwifery workplace.
The unique program, which follows the philosophy of ‘woman-centred’ midwifery practice, will
enable you to develop a high level of critical thinking, technical competence and interdisciplinary
teamwork skills. Your assessments are based on written assignments, tutorial presentations, case
studies, various projects and examinations and professional practice assessment at the university and
healthcare setting level. On graduation you will have fulfilled all necessary requirements of the
Australian Health Professional Regulation Agency, enabling you to register as a midwife with the
Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.
