Many midwives are full-time faculty members of departments of obstetrics and gynecology in academic medical centers. As such, they contribute to the medical school's educational mission by teaching undergraduate and postgraduate medical students in both the clinical area and in didactic lectures. Midwives are also instrumental in the development of many innovative electives, workshops, and lectures, which provide students and residents with more exposure to the midwifery model of care. This article presents some of these innovations.
