Please first review IBLCE's Pathway 3 Plan Guide. This guide outlines all requirements to start and complete a Pathway 3 program.
At OBRC, we help prepare the next generation of lactation consultants by providing our own Pathway 3 Clinical Training program. This program helps those who qualify to obtain clinical experience hours through our 4-month, full-time, clinical rotation schedule. Trainees will gain experience in a variety of settings including: inpatient and outpatient areas, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), the Oklahoma Mothers’ Milk Bank, as well as clinics out in the community. Completion of the OBRC P3 Program fulfills the clinical training requirement to be eligible to sit for the exam put forth by the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) for designation as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).
If you DO NOT work in one of the below facilities where you can obtain on the job clinical practice hours, then our program may be the one for you!
- Birth Center
- Community Clinic
- Lactation Care Clinic/Practice
- Primary Care Practitioner’s Practice/Office
