Marywood University’s respiratory therapy program is the only program offered for respiratory therapy in the area, and the first program of its kind. We designed the program so that students will graduate feeling prepared to not only take their board exam but pass the first-time.
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs in the respiratory therapy field will be growing by 23% in the next 10 years. Marywood wants students to feel confident leaving the program. Marywood arms their students with a strong knowledge base, preparing students for real-life challenges they will encounter in the field.
The Perfect Blend of Healthcare & Technology
Students will be working with a variety of machinery, making this program the perfect blend for students interested in both healthcare and technology.
Respiratory therapists can work in a variety of settings including in a hospital, pulmonary rehabilitation center, physicians office, and move on to management or clinical education settings after a few years of clinical experiences.
