Philadelphia University Distance Program

  1. Does anyone have experience w/ the Midwifery Institute at Phila. Univ? It sounds like a good program, but I have never heard mention of it on these or other forums. Also, any thoughts about this program compared w/ the Frontier School? Thanks.

    here used to be a booth maternity center on city line ave in phila closed due to funding in early 90's. two independent centers now in area are birth center in bryn mawr and schuylkill valley center. st
