uManitoba reaches agreement with McMaster to continue midwifery program

August 9, 2016

Fourteen midwifery students in Manitoba will be able to resume their studies this fall following an agreement between the University of Manitoba and McMaster University. Under the agreement, the students will be offered admission to McMaster’s Midwifery Education Program and will take their classes at uManitoba as McMaster transfer students. They will also be given a modified fall semester in order to move into clinical midwifery placements afterwards. The students had been left in limbo in June when the Manitoba government decided to discontinue the midwifery program at University College of the North.
