Mission of the Respiratory Therapy Program

The primary mission of the respiratory therapy program is to provide a high-quality education that is relevant and professionally sound to meet the respiratory care needs in the health care community. Inherent in this mission is the program‘s goal to prepare students who can demonstrate the attitudes, skills, and knowledge relevant to their role as registered respiratory therapists.

Throughout the study of respiratory care, an emphasis is placed on the expanding role of the respiratory therapist as an essential member of the health care team. Each new topic is presented in a manner that requires students to decide whether care is needed, administer the care competently, and determine whether the care provided was in fact effective.

Clinical experience is regarded as the highest importance to the success of program. Extensive practice at a premier academic medical center helps students develop critical thinking skills, use strong communication skills and demonstrate the leadership required of today‘s respiratory therapists.
