|Resident Training School|
Midwifery Institute of America is an organization whose goal is to promote the gospel of Jesus Christ and provide academic training to women who feel called by God into the ministry of midwifery.
The advantages of our Resident Training School are many. Classes are taught by a midwife and students have an opportunity to ask questions. They are able to view many birth videos and act out complicated birth scenarios in special hands-on workshops. The instructor is able to discuss not only the meaning but also the significance of the vast vocabulary that is needed by midwives. Students can also practice skills such as taking blood pressure and listening to heart sounds, interacting with one another in the class. Due to the immersive nature of the environment and small student-teacher ratio, the resident school has a much higher completion rate than the correspondence school.
The Resident Training School is held for two terms, 13 weeks each. Currently these terms are only held during the summer months, one each year. We are now accepting applications for Term 1.
Our resident training facility is located in the Ozark Mountains of Northwest Arkansas. Students either live in student housing or are placed with a Christian family. In student housing all students have access to kitchen facilities. In either of these living situations students will be responsible for providing their own food. If living with a family they will need to make arrangements with the family and pay for their meals. When living in a house with other students, the students themselves will need to cooperate on meal preparation and purchasing of food.
Students who are accepted and are planning to attend either session will need to pay a $300 non-refundable housing deposit not less than 4 weeks prior to the start of classes for that session. This deposit is a first payment of the whole housing cost and not in addition to the costs listed above.
The remainder of the tuition and housing are due the day before each session begins. This is the day when students are expected to arrive for classes.
