This paper is the third in a series reporting on the findings of the AMAP Education Survey of the 27 Australian universities providing a program for initial authorisation to practise as a midwife. Workforce issues were identified by this research, such as the potential number of places in courses, attrition rates, and the number of graduates from midwifery education programs who seek and obtain employment in midwifery. The findings pose serious challenges to the development and sustainability of the Australian midwifery workforce.
