Lactation Consultant Schools in Pennsylvania - PA

For those looking for lactation consultant training in Pennsylvania, keep in mind that both a strong academic healthcare background as well as a practicum in human lactation and breastfeeding is required to achieve professional certification as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).

The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) has 14 universities throughout the state, many of which offer healthcare education that is an appropriate background for those who wish to enter the medical profession as a lactation consultant. Additionally, there are numerous private colleges and universities, as well as online learning opportunities available. While the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) currently doesn’t have a list of specified required courses, it is highly recommended that a future lactation consultant’s education background consists of courses at the college level in human physiology, human anatomy, medical terminology, growth and development in infants and children, counseling, nutrition, and cultural sensitivity.

Opportunities for a lactation specific clinical experience can be found at major medical facilities such as the Albert Einstein Medical Center, the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Saint Luke's Hospitals and Temple University Hospital, as well as many smaller medical facilities and clinics and private practices of obstetricians and pediatricians.
