Midwifery

The Midwifery department of Odisee University college is located in Sint-Niklaas. Midwifery students interested in an traineeship in Belgium can perform their practical training in a regional hospital on the following wards: labour and delivery ward, maternity and neonatology (38h/week). We offer options for short and long mobility, which can be combined to a maximum of 21 ECTS. There is also a possibility to follow an additional course on Medical English (3 ECTS) or a Dutch language course.

Traineeships are possible in both Autumn and Spring semester, depending on the available places for practical training in the hospital. Evaluation of the practical training is done by a comprehensive system of reflections, feedback from midwives and written/oral evaluations. The practical training is supervised by one of the lecturers of our Midwifery department.

Students have to perform different kind of shifts (day, early, late and night shifts), including weekends. A detailed planning will be provided by our practical training coordinator a few weeks before the start of the internship. For more information including available places for an internship in Midwifery, please contact the international coordinator, Mrs. Inge Tency.
