Fraser Health: Midwifery Fellowship vacancies

[Fraser Health Communications]

The Fraser Health Authority (FHA) Midwifery Division within the Regional Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology is pleased to offer temporary fellowship appointments for new registrant midwives for one year. These temporary fellowship appointments are intended to provide a one-year experience to support postgraduate consolidation of knowledge and skills. FHA will consider applications from new graduates who are able to secure a commitment from an established FHA midwifery practice to work within a team mentorship framework for the full year. This mentorship should include a comprehensive orientation, regular chart review, and a plan for practical support throughout the term of the appointment.
