Clinical preceptors play a central role in the education of Ryerson midwifery students. Students spend 2.5 years of the 4-year Midwifery Education Program learning alongside community based midwives and interprofessional 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 Ryerson Midwifery Education Program 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, students in clinical placements, and midwifery faculty.
