Purpose and Program Objectives

It is the goal of International Institute for Health Care Professionals (IIHCP) to provide an Education Environment to promote optimum learning and to prepare each of our students to:

  • Practice independently as a Florida Licensed Midwife giving complete low risk care and birth for the childbearing year.
  • Provide maternity care as an informed professional who is aware of community health issues, epidemiological concepts and social service resources.
  • Communicate effectively and employ counseling techniques when necessary.
  • Understand the importance of research and statistical data and to use both for professional growth, high standard of practice, and to educate
  • “Provide collaborative prenatal and postpartum care to pregnant women not at low risk in their pregnancy, labor, and delivery, within a written protocol of a physician currently licensed under chapter 458 or chapter 459” {F.S.467.015 (2)}.
  • Pass the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM) National Examination (which is used in the State of Florida as the state licensing examination.)
  • Meet 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 state-of-the-art knowledge of medical science. Programs are designed to help students develop and refine both clinical and communication skills essential to midwifery care practice. In practice, it is imperative to regard the dignity and rights of clients and families, communicate effectively, be able to differentiate between low-risk and high-risk obstetric clients and to make arrangements for collaboration or referral.
