Introduction: One of the important outputs of the academic midwifery educations is improving the student's clinical skills. This study endeavored to determine the incompatibility and gap between expectations and actual abilities in new graduated midwives
Methods: This descriptive study has been done among all recently graduated midwives of two universities in Ahvaz in the academic 5 for self-evaluation of their job expectations. The questionnaire was developed by a needs analysis of midwives job expectations.
Results: Results revealed that the graduated midwives were satisfied in theoretical instructions (80-100%); however, their clinical abilities were achieved only 71.4% in admission and labor, 47% in delivery, 46% in postpartum, and 60% in emergencies.
Conclusion: The new midwives' clinical skills are not sufficient to manage their job expectation. These findings could be applicable for national midwifery panel and instructors to revise the curriculum and for the health organizations to prepare the new graduates for job expectations within a 6-month period of training.

Keywords: Job expectations, clinical competence, pregnancy and childbirth, midwifery graduates.
