His/her skills include assistance and advice to the woman in a special and delicate period of her life, pregnancy, childbirth and puerperium. The Degree Programme in Midwifery offers students a complete training both from a theoretical point of view (scientific knowledge specific to the professional profile) and from a practical point of view (technical skills needed for the proper performance of the profession).

The Degree Programme provides for a six-month organisation of training activities characterised by theoretical (lectures, exercises) and clinical-assistance (internship) learning. The activity of compulsory practical application internship is carried out with the supervision and guidance of professional tutors and internship guides.
