a Respiratory Therapist, you deal with one of the critical
life-sustaining functions of the human body – breathing.
You will deal with life and death issues on a daily basis.
You will conduct diagnostic testing procedures and administer
treatments to improve patients’ breathing, as well as implement
and monitor life support equipment.
You will assist physicians in the diagnosis and manage heart/lung
deficiencies and abnormalities, and use sophisticated equipment
to measure lung function and monitor heart functions. You
might treat newborns, trauma victims, drowning victims, and
patients suffering from asthma, bronchitis, coronary heart
disease, emphysema, and pneumonia.
Our Respiratory Therapy Program is 60 weeks long.
In addition to the realistic laboratory environment Concorde
provides, we also offer a hands-on working experience in various
hospital settings through four clinical rotations. These experiences
take place throughout the program and consist of 810 hours.
