The summer field experience is two days a week and allows students to practice in clinical areas in which they have received instruction. Students explore non-traditional roles for respiratory therapists, volunteer their time in a selected area of practice outside of the traditional hospital practice, and summarize their experiences in written and oral reports. Students create a case study presentation while applying evidence-based medicine guidelines. Graded Pass/No Pass.
