The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston Department of Respiratory Care in the School of Health Professions (SHP) recently earned the American Association for Respiratory Care Apex Recognition Award. To receive this highly sought after recognition, respiratory therapy programs must demonstrate best practices in the profession.
Our SHP Department of Respiratory Care was one of only 29 recipients across the United States for this year’s recognition. The Apex Award distinguishes programs for their commitment to excellence in professional development and the education of respiratory therapists to deliver the highest quality of care and elevate the respiratory therapy profession. Our team has worked hard to provide this outstanding level of education to our students while also seeking out opportunities to grow our program and the profession.
