ABSTRACT
The aim of this paper is to examine the process of transformation of the midwives' education in Spain, from the late eighteenth century to the mid-nineteenth century. With this objective, the circumstances which determined that midwives were been trained in Colleges of Surgery are identified and, moreover, the details of this training are described: admission policy, faculty, duration of studies, exams and midwives' obligations. As a result, the number of students who started the first training course of 1790 in the «Real Colegio de Cirugía de San Carlos de Madrid» was reduced, with a further fall when Pablo Ferrándiz Bendicho inaugurated the «Cátedra de Partos» on 19 April 1790. This paper also discusses how the admission for candidates to midwifery education was tightened in the following years and includes the names of the first qualified midwives, which may help in future research works in other regions of the country.
