Clinical Practice Requirements

Clinical Practice Requirements

For admission to the Bachelor of Midwifery, you must complete the following pre-practice requirements:


Proof of up-to-date immunization status is required for each clinical practicum and is the responsibility of the student along with all associated costs. Failure to maintain a current immunization status will result in immediate withdrawal from clinical practice.

Personal Vehicle and Driver’s License

Access to a personal vehicle and a valid driver’s license is required in each year of the program. 

Police Information Check

Provincial legislation requires that new employees and volunteers in publicly funded agencies are subject to a police information check and vulnerable sector check. A local police check is required prior to starting the first year of the program. All associated costs are the responsibility of the student.

If a student is denied a clinical placement due to a criminal record identified by a police check, the student will be unable to meet course requirements and will be required to withdraw from the program. Refer to the statement regarding Police Information and Other Background Checks in the Mount Royal University Academic Calendar.

Additional requirements 

Bachelor of Midwifery students will be required to complete additional pre-practice requirements starting in their second year, many of which must be renewed annually. All associated costs are the responsibility of the student. Additional information will be provided to successful applicants.
