Association of Texas Midwives Midwifery Training Program experiences?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

My preceptor recommends the ATMMTP program which is a distance-learning midwifery program which includes at least two workshops per year, sometimes more. It takes 33 months to 3 years to complete and costs $7000, significantly less than many other structured programs. 

 

However, I can hardly find any information about it online. It seems to me that such a detailed program with frequent workshops would get more attention... but I can't find anything! Can somebody help me out? I'm just looking for more "endorsements" I guess before I start anything. 

 

The website is: http://www.texasmidwives.com/education/programcontent.asp

I pointed this thread out to a friend who did their program. Hopefully she'll have a minute to answer.

And here I am!

 

 

I've found ATM to be a great program. I'm in one of the last classes in the 7 module, now they've moved to 8.

 

Intro to Midwifery

Antimony & Physiology

The Antepartum Period (this has been split into two parts)

Normal Intrapartum

Complications of Intrapartum

Postpartum & Newborn

Advanced Skills

 

You get the module, do all the work, then go off for a three day workshop (except for mod 2 which is it's own beast). There are clinical and practical requirements too. This sets you up to take the NARM as a Texas State Candidate.

 

Or you can do the out-of-state option. You get the module, finish it off whenever, send it in, and get the next one (no workshops). You also do not do the clinical and practical side, instead you take the NARM as a PEP student.

 

Since I'm from NY trying to find a preceptor has been really hard; having one for module 3 on would have made the work easier for me (hands on experience, someone to ask questions to). Being in an apprenticeship is required to take the module 5 workshop. I did the workshop scheduled for the first four modules, than switched over to out-of-state.

 

If you have any other questions give the office a call, Claudine Crews runs the student program and is a great lady to chat with.
