Custom Workshop

If the dates of our in-person workshops do not fit your schedule or if your group would prefer a more tailored workshop, we can bring our two-day workshop to you.  An on-site workshop offers the dual benefit of convenience and customization to meet your needs.  The workshop will focus on exploring the feasibility and advisability of establishing a birth center within the healthcare delivery system of your specific community.

The fee for a two-day on-site workshop is $6,000 plus faculty travel and hotel expenses and $100 for each participant to receive a digital workshop manual.
