The Midwifery program of the Charles Darwin University is designed to extend your knowledge gained through midwifery clinical practice and develop your research appraisal skills. It is expected that you will already be employed or have recent experience in a clinical setting and will undertake assessments that have a direct application to your professional practice and context.


About the Program

The Midwifery program of the Charles Darwin University has a focus on cultivating research skills in a supported partnership with an experienced midwife academic. During the final semester, you will either undertake a systematic review or a project to address a 'real world' issue in your individual practice setting. The project will be conducted entirely within your practice setting, and your findings will be disseminated to all relevant stakeholders at the clinical site.

The Master of Midwifery is a coursework qualification, it does not lead to register as a Nurse or Midwife in Australia.
