The professional figure of the Obstetrician plays an important role in health care because it follows the woman at every stage of her life, from birth to senility. Among the many midwifery competences are pregnancy, childbirth and puerperium, in which the midwife assists and advises (in complete autonomy in the case of physiology and in a multi-professional team in the case of pathology) the woman in one of the most special and delicate periods of her life. The Degree Programme in Midwifery offers students a comprehensive training in both theory (scientific knowledge specific to the professional profile) and practice (technical skills necessary for carrying out the profession).

Programme contents

The degree programme is organised on a six-monthly basis for theoretical training activities (lectures, tutorials), and on an annual basis for practical clinical-assistance activities (practical training). The internship experience requires 100 per cent attendance, which is indispensable for acquiring the skills required for the specific job profile. Clinical experience enables the student to deal with unique care situations that cannot be reproduced by theoretical approaches and/or classroom simulations alone. The internship takes place in different locations under the supervision and guidance of professional tutors and trained internship guides, gradually increasing in complexity over time.

Job opportunities

At the end of the three-year programme, the obstetrician is able to carry out with his/her own responsibility, independently and/or in collaboration with other professionals, intellectual and technical/scientific interventions in the healthcare, relational, educational, management, training and research field aimed at prevention, diagnosis, care, protection and recovery of health in the obstetrics, neonatal, gynaecological and gynaecological oncology fields, with particular focus on women, couples, new-born children, children, family and community. The Obstetrician may work in public or private healthcare facilities, hospitals or local facilities, as employees or on a freelance basis. After obtaining the Bachelor's degree, graduates may access the Master's Degree in Nursing and Midwifery Sciences, Short Professional Programmes, and Vocational Master Programmes (1st level) in the specific field.
