Women's Health Care Studies Programs
Penn's program showcases cutting edge research from some of the nation's top faculty in women's health and midwifery in a collaborative classroom setting. Specially-designed courses are dedicated to innovative and rigorous academic preparation in complementary and alternative therapies (integrative healthcare), fetal evaluation, healthcare policy which prepare Penn graduates with a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
Specifically, graduates are prepared with a wide range of skills not found in many other programs including IUD insertion, endometrial biopsies, and OB ultrasonography. That, coupled with unique clinical sites arranged by the School, and critical thinking skills informed by the latest research, unite to make Penn nationally recognized, with the nurse-midwifery program ranked second in the nation by US News & World Report.
Penn nurse-midwifery graduates are eligible for dual certification as Women's Health Nurse Practitioners and as certified nurse-midwives. The Penn experience also offers opportunities for clinical experience in out-of-hospital birthing sites as well as international study.
The academic rigor is balanced by a wealth of experiences beyond the classroom allowing students personal relationships with instructors and fellow students.
