Master of Science in Respiratory Care

Respiratory Care students demonstrate numerous competencies representing all three learning domains: cognitive, psychomotor and affective. Students learn, practice and verify these competencies in a number of settings including the classroom, laboratory and clinic. There is no limit to where respiratory care practitioners work as they perform therapeutic and life support procedures, measure/monitor cardiopulmonary functions in critical care settings, and educate patients and their families about living with lung disease.
