Clinical Teaching and Learning

students having a discussion

Clinical preceptors play a central role in the education of Ryerson midwifery students. Students spend two and a half years of the four-year Midwifery Education Program (MEP) learning alongside community-based midwives and inter-professional care providers.

Preceptors provide mentorship and guided teaching for students to put theory into practice to become skilled and compassionate midwives. Students rank their clinical learning as one of the most important and challenging parts of their midwifery education.

The MEP is committed to supporting preceptors to provide clinical education that promotes competence and confidence in student learners. 

This section of the website provides information and resources for Ryerson affiliated preceptors, teaching practice coordinators, students in clinical placements and midwifery faculty.
