Clinical Affiliates

Clinical experience is an integral part of the curriculum in the Department of Respiratory Care Education. Respiratory Care students begin clinical rotations starting in their sixth week of the program. Clinical rotations give the student exposure to patient care and experience in performing respiratory care procedures. Students start by learning and practicing the fundamental procedures, and then progress to more advanced processes, such as ventilator and life support management.

Respiratory Care Education partners with several clinical affiliate sites to allow students to participate with a clinical preceptor in performing these respiratory care activities.
