Pomegranate is excited to be a preceptor site for midwifery, medical and nursing students. We find that teaching keeps our skills sharp, and demands that we are always up to date with the latest maternity-care research. In return, our students teach us from their own life experience, and infuse our practice with new energy. In the case of our midwifery students who are with us for one or more semesters, they provide an even deeper level of continuity to our clients.

In their third year of school, which is when medical students are exploring what area(s) of practice or specialty appeals to them, they are offered the opportunity to follow a midwife through her clinic day. They are also able to take classes with midwifery students, and be part of the Maternity Care Club which involves midwives and GPs teaching hands-on obstetric skills.
