Midwifery professor gives talk
25th May 2011
Dr. Denis Walsh, a senior midwife and an associate professor in midwifery at Nottingham University, took time out of his busy schedule to speak with students interested in a career in midwifery today.
The professor leads research on natural births and drug reduction in labour, and also practices at the Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham. The professor gave students an insight into the role of a midwife, and information about what the day-to-day work is like.
During the hour long session, Dr. Walsh, who is also involved in the selection process at Nottingham University, gave the students tips on the UCAS application statement and university interviews, as well as how to gain experience or further their knowledge of the subject.
Raiven, 17, said: " The midwifery talk was very informative and interesting. I was inspired and want to pursue a career in midwifery!"
Dr. Walsh said: " The students engaged with the topic and showed a lot of interest, some of the girls were particularly keen and very motivated."
