Have a Professional Health Degree: How to Apply
If you have a health professional baccalaureate degree, such as a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, from an accredited university or equivalent, as well as significant maternity care experience, then you may be considered for an accelerated stream of the Midwifery Education Program (MEP).
- The Post-Baccalaureate Program for Health Professionals (PBHP) is typically only offered to a few suitable applicants each year.
- During the review of your application to the 4-year MEP, you will be identified as holding a previous health professional degree.
- If you are successful regarding the basic admissions requirements of the MEP, the Personal Letter review, and are selected for an interview, you will be formally informed of the PBHP.
- If you are interested in the PBHP, you will be required to submit detailed information about your relevant past clinical and academic experience in maternity care, on the same day that you attend your interview.
- Candidacy for the PBHP is conditional on both a successful overall application to the MEP, and relevant educational and work experience. If you meet these criteria, you will be invited to a PHBP interview.
- During a PBHP interview, your work history will be reviewed, as well as your readiness to transition into midwifery, and your aptitude to meet the demands of an intensive, condensed program.
- Meeting criteria does not guarantee an offer of admission, since applicants can outnumber available spots.
- The PBHP is completed over 6 consecutive semesters (no summer break between year 1 and 2).
- Applicants offered admission to the PBHP can decide whether to accept it or a place within the 4-year MEP.
