Introduction: In this study, the research team decided to take a step towards improving the quality of midwifery education by designing, implementing, and evaluating the midwifery internship course using the group rethinking method based on Boud et al.'s model.
Methods:  This study was a single-group semi-experimental type. Reflection was first proposed in small groups and then in a larger group and the necessary feedback was provided.  The study tool included a standard survey questionnaire and a rethinking checklist. The results of the test were analyzed by performing descriptive and analytical statistical tests, and t-tests.
Results: The average score of the survey before reflection was 122.95 ± 10.48 and after rethinking was 131.60 ± 19.78. The findings showed that there is a statistically significant difference between the opinions of students before the beginning of the study and after the end of the study (P = 0.012). Based on the results of the checklist completed by the students, the discussed topics included: 1- labor control (28%), 2- childbirth process and postpartum care of the mother (56%), and 3- newborn care (16%).
Conclusion: The results of this study show that reflection has been able to be useful for students and help educators in providing correct and adequate education. During the reflection process, the instructors will have an opportunity to complete the presented material or correct it in case of students' misconceptions. As a result, reflection is a suitable auxiliary tool to improve the quality of midwifery education.
