Midwifery at Yale
The Nurse Midwifery Specialty prepares students as competent midwives who provide family-centered primary health care. Relevant research and concepts from nursing, midwifery, medicine, and the sciences provide a base for clinical practice and primary care.
The Yale Midwifery Faculty Practice collaborates with the Yale School of Medicine’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology to provide interdisciplinary education to midwifery students, medical students, and OB/GYN residents.
