Competency-based Education

The goal of International Institute for Health Care Professionals (IIHCP) is to provide an educational environment which promotes optimal learning and helps to prepare each of our students to:

  • Practice independently as a Florida Licensed Midwife providing comprehensive care throughout the childbearing year
  • Provide maternity care as an informed professional who is aware of the intersection of community and public health, epidemiological concepts and social service resources
  • Communicate effectively and employ counseling techniques needed within their midwifery practices
  • Understand the importance of research and statistical data within the healthcare setting, and have the tools available which enable them to use the most current knowledge for professional growth and a high standard of practice
  • Build cooperative relationships which facilitate collaboration with other healthcare providers in the community
  • Learn how to support physiologic birth
  • Pass the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM) national examination, used in the State of Florida as the state licensing examination.
  • Meet the national criteria for becoming a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM).

These goals will be attained by providing each student with an education based on a combination of the art of traditional midwifery and evidence-based science. Programs are designed to help students develop and refine both clinical and communication skills essential to midwifery care practice.
