Based on a list of clinical skills from ACNM’s Core Competencies and ICM’s Essential Competencies for Basic Practice that is tailored for use in the U.S., the Midwifery Clinical Competency Assessment Tool (MCAT) and the Semester Summary Tool (SST) were designed to help midwifery educational programs ensure didactic coverage of important topics, evaluate and track student clinical progress, structure communication with preceptors, guide students’ clinical opportunities across semesters/terms, and assist with program revision. Using data from the MCAT, the SST is designed to give program directors “at a glance” summaries of the student cohort’s progress and of the program’s capacity. This discussion will review the use of these tools, and include discussion on integrating competency-based education to prepare midwives.
