What can a medical student or resident learn from a midwife about childbirth? Dr. Elisabeth Howard and Edie McConaughey, both certified nurse midwives at Women & Infants Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island, recently completed research on midwives as educators to medical students. They discuss with host Lisa Dandrea Lenell why it's important for these two professions to collaborate even though there may be a difference in philosophy and why midwives are good teachers for future doctors.
