As many of you already know, MEAC is planning to implement a moratorium effective July 1, 2015 on out-of-country clinical placements for new students attending MEAC-accredited programs and institutions. This issue is difficult one and has undergone much discussion within the larger midwifery community.  For the past 25 years, NCM has had many successful relationships with preceptors located outside of the US, significantly benefiting our students and their ability to complete their midwifery education.
We want to make sure that the experiences of our alumni and preceptors be included in this process, as it stands to significantly affect the options available to our students and preceptors.
MEAC has requested feedback on this decision and we want to encourage our students, preceptors, alumni and anyone with any interest in the future of midwifery education to participate in this process by taking the following survey:
