About the role

Places are available on the Eastern Health Midwifery Refresher Program.

This is comprised of 37 core hours of study and access to 16 elective hours.

It includes access to clinical educator support, professional development study days, skill acquisition via simulation based learning and clinical placement in the acute ward setting.

The program will commence in July 2022, with the flexibility to start later at a mutually convenient time. There is no requirement to work weekends, public holidays or nights.
