Graduate Midwifery Program
The Graduate Midwifery Program is based across maternity services of Northern Health. It has been designed to offer you, as a new practitioner, consolidation across the midwifery continuum of care in a well-supported and nurturing environment.
The maternity unit at The Northern Hospital is situated in one of Melbourne’s major growth corridors, with over 3800 births annually. The unit comprises nine fully equipped birthing suites, 28 dedicated maternity beds and Level 5 Special Care Nursery and Antenatal Outpatients clinic.
Support is the key to success as a graduate midwife. Our Clinical Midwife Educators, Clinical Support Midwives, preceptors and experienced clinical staff provide practical assistance and support in the clinical environment.
Orientation to Northern Health is designed specifically to support the graduate midwife, addressing both clinical and administrative aspects over a 2 day program in our state-of-the-art Northern Centre for Health Education and Research. Supernumerary shifts are allocated on each rotation, working with a preceptor.
Rotations across the midwifery continuum include:
Special Care Nursery
Education is ongoing. Graduate study days encompass theory, hands-on practice and experience in our simulation centre – as well as the opportunity to debrief and share experiences in a supported friendly environment. Learning packages and assessments in advanced clinical skills are offered to further enhance your skill set. You will be given the opportunity to participate in a well-supported and comprehensive series of professional development in-services and workshops relevant to your growth as a midwife.
Employment in our graduate program is over a 53 week period, on a part-time basis – working 8 shifts per fortnight.
