Full course description

ASM Block 4

Course Description: Through this course, the student will learn how to perform a complete physical examination relevant to an annual midwifery wellness visit. This course focuses in-depth on anatomical structures that are examined during care and the skills needed to screen clients for possible abnormalities or pathology. The course is broken down into four sections: general exam, breast exam, pelvic exam, and rectal exam. This course uses current research in midwifery and obstetrics to broaden the student’s understanding of the NARM skills and MEAC core competencies learned under clinical supervision.
