CAO CODE: TR914 This four year programme will be offered in partnership with two linked maternity care providers: Coombe Women's Hospital and The Rotunda Hospital.The first three years combine learning in both university and midwifery practice in the maternity hospitals and will take place during the academic year with usual academic holidays. The final year will include a 36 week period of internship in midwifery practice for which the students will be salaried. This programme will provide you with the knowledge and skills to meet the needs of women and their families in an individualised, culturally sensitive manner. There are two components to the midwifery degree programme - a theoretical component and a midwifery practice component. Like all professional courses in health sciences, midwifery places extra demands on students' time. It can be demanding, both physically and emotionally and so you should ensure that you are in a position to fully engage with the course during your time in College.
