Celebrating 25 Years of Excellence in Midwifery Education

2018 marks the 25th anniversary of the Midwifery Education Program (MEP). 

In 1993, our program admitted its first students as part of a consortium of Laurentian, McMaster and Ryerson Universities. The MEP now offers a bachelor of health sciences degree in midwifery through full-time, part-time and post-baccalaureate streams, and is home to over 117 students and 395 alumni.

Join us for a year of celebrations as we honour the work of our community, connect with each other and build capacity for the future.
