The student-led Midwifery Society which is supported by the Department to enrich the student learning experience
The Midwifery Society creates a recognised forum to develop an EHU community for student midwives. A Society with elected committee members promotes communication among peers and enhances a collegiate approach to sharing knowledge. In addition, a recognised forum raises the profile of the University through a series of study events and conferences at reduced/ minimal costs.
Attendance at study events/ conferences organised by the Midwifery Society has encouraged members of the Society to participate in evidence-based learning and networking opportunities. This year, the Society has organised two study events attracting national speakers at significantly reduced costs for members. Additionally, the Society has facilitated the second annual ‘mentor in practice awards’. This positive event strengthens the department’s relationship with practice placement providers.
This year, the President of the Society was a finalist for the national Student Midwife of the Year 2017 award from the Royal College of Midwives.
