The Respiratory Therapy curriculum prepares individuals to function as respiratory therapists. In these roles, individuals perform diagnostic testing, treatments, and management of patients with heart and lung diseases.
The Respiratory Therapy program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC).
In all health science curricula, students are assigned clinical rotations with area health care agencies. Prior to or at any time after admission, the health sciences student may be required to submit to a criminal background check and/or drug screen.
