Head of the Department Professor János Rigó, M.D., Ph.D., D.Sc.
The Department of Clinical Studies in Obstetrics and Gynaecology was founded in 2014. Earlier, the training of midwives was performed by the Division of Midwifery of the Department of Nursing. Academic level training of nurses began through part-time courses in 1989/90; since 1990/91 a full-time training programme has been offered as well. Additional programmes have been introduced in recent years, including the training of midwives (2002) and a masters-level programme in nursing (2003).
The English language midwifery training programme was introduced in the 2011/12 academic year.
The B.Sc. midwifery training programme can be completed on either a full-time or part time track. Those who receive a midwifery degree upon successful completion of this program are able to carry out communicational/informational/documentation activities, provide a safe and hygienic environment, complete general midwifery tasks, and provide first aid, complete tasks related to antenatal care, conduct deliveries, care for female patients, and care for the newborn and the postpartum mother. The B.Sc. midwifery program is based on the Directive 2005/36/EC of the European Parliament and the one of the European Council of 7 September 2005 on recognition of professional qualifications. Duration of the training: 8 semesters, 240 ECTS credits.
Members of the Department’s staff support projects and researches in different fields of healthcare and healthcare education, e.g.: health behaviour of practising midwives, simulation education and curriculum development, and the impact of maternal depression on pregnancies and early attachment.
