Abstract

This research focuses on the dynamics of social and professional representations involved in the process of professionalization of midwifery students. It mobilizes the theory of social and professional representations and asks a representational system of two objects: the profession of midwifes and the profession of doctor.  A transverse study by questionnaires with 358 students in different stages of their training (a total of 5 years, from the year of the exam to the fourth year in midwives’ school) highlighted the evolution of these representations during training.
