  4. Submit your payment the same day.
  5. Receive our decision in 2 weeks or less.
  6. Payment options and deadlines will be discussed after application is approved.

How does our program differ from the rest?

  • We offer one full month in Abura Dhunkwa, compared to other programs who only offer 2 weeks for the same price.
  • We offer a choice number of partial scholarships for those who can demonstrate financial need.
  • We offer participation in hospital, clinical, and home birthing experiences*.
  • We include housing, prepared meals, laundry service, local transportation, and cultural immersion opportunities.
  • When possible, we offer guides that can explain cultural practices and allow for a deeper understanding of the patient and the community.

In addition, we aren’t outsiders when we go to Ghana.  Our founder, Umm Salaamah, is recognized as the Queen Mother of Health in Abura Dhunkwa, and she and Midwives On the Move are afforded local trust and accommodation for the on-going dedication to the community.

We accept applicants with varying experience.  However, those who have already completed a midwife education program that covered core competencies will gain the most hands on experience from their trip.

Midwives On the Move has been approved by the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM) as an Out of Country Clinical Site (OOC Clinical Site) until 2016.  To learn more about NARM qualifications and how they relate to your Ghana experience, please visit the NARM website.

*If you are a NARM applicant, you can only receive credit for being ‘active participant’ or ‘primary under supervision’ in the hospital setting.  Participating in births in village clinics and homes will add to your personal experience and knowledge.
