Professor Vanora Hundley and Dr Susan Way present their work on the match-funded opportunities for doctoral studentships in midwifery. Taking a different approach from the usual PhD studentships, this doctorate is structured to enable students to spend two days a week in clinical practice and three days conducting research.

Vanora Hundle is a Professor of Midwifery in CMMPH and the Deputy Dean for Research and Professional Practice in the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences, Bournemouth University and temporary advisor to the World Health Organisation. Dr Susan Way is an Associate Professor and Deputy Head of CMMPH in the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences, has held posts as Lead Midwife for Education (LME), chaired the LME Executive Group and has worked as a Midwifery Advisor for the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
