Winnipeg Free Press: Agreement with Ontario university allows midwifery students to complete studies

August 8, 2016 — 

As the Winnipeg Free Press reports:

The University of Manitoba and Education and Training Minister Ian Wishart announced on Friday it had entered into a memorandum of understanding with McMaster to offer admission to midwifery students who had completed their first year of Manitoba’s Midwifery program. Some details of this new agreement were published in a Free Press article earlier this week.

“This new partnership will ensure the midwifery students in Manitoba who have already invested significant time and effort toward their studies can complete their coursework uninterrupted,” Wishart said in a statement …

Beverley O’Connell, dean of the U of M’s college of nursing, said “we’re very pleased with our ‘homegrown’ solution, which will allow current midwifery students to continue to live, work and study in Winnipeg and, during clinical placements, serve patients in remote and rural communities across Manitoba.”
