Graduate Midwife

Dr Mary Ross-Davie at the Scotland Festival in 2017

“Our Midwifery Team at Cardiff University have been delighted to engage with the Festival as we have met and discussed education with so many great midwives, students and potential students! Having a stand in the exhibition hall was excellent as we engaged with the real ‘buzz’ that is always generated when midwives get together! Our students were so proud to have posters accepted for presentation and we also shared best practice through oral presentations. The keynote presentations were inspiring and prompted excellent discussion. Winning the Team Award was the highlight too! Well worth being a part of a great event – thanks!” Lead Midwife for Education, Cardiff University
