The Respiratory Therapy Program prepares students to work in a variety of health care settings, to care for patients with acute and chronic respiratory disease, to assist in the treatment of trauma patients, and to provide life support to critically ill newborn, pediatric, and adult patients. Students receive a solid foundation in principles of cardiopulmonary physiology and respiratory care practices prior to providing hands-on care within actual clinical settings. Clinical experiences begin with basic general care and progress to extensive experience in adult medical and surgical intensive care and neonatal/pediatric intensive care units. Throughout the curriculum, students are expected to develop a caring commitment to the patient along with safe and effective respiratory care. Students rotate through renowned and respected clinical sites, including Prince George’s Hospital Center, Washington Hospital Center, Children’s National Medical Center, University of Maryland Medical Center, and Anne Arundel Medical Center.
