At Ramsay health aim to provide comprehensive, Graduate Midwifery Programs to help transition the newly graduated Midwife into the Midwifery profession. Waverley and Mitcham hospitals are collaborating to offer Graduate Midwifery positions. Sucessful participants will gain exposure in both environments to maximise experience and consolidate clinical practice.. This specialised 12 month program offers rotations through our Maternity units at both sites. You will be supported by our experienced education team, led by Christine Quinn, our Staff Development Coordinator and Maternity Educator from Waverley Private Hospital and Hannah Chilton our Maternity Educator from Mitcham Private Hospital. Both sites have a team of clinical preceptors who will offer guided learning throughout the year to consolidate your clinical knowledge and practice.
