Clinical Education

Clinical practice is required of students every semester. The purpose of clinical practice is to give students the opportunity to perform respiratory therapy while supervised by a clinical instructor. A variety of clinical facilities are used in an effort to increase exposure to all aspects of respiratory care. Students are scheduled for clinical practice two days per week (either during the weekday or weekend) and rotations are generally 8 to 12 hours in length.

ATTENTION 

Clinical facilities may require criminal background checks, drug screenings, credit checks, and/or proof of US citizenship prior to or during participation in the clinical portion of a program. Any expenses associated with these requirements are the responsibility of the student. Pending the outcome, clinical facilities may deny a student the opportunity to complete the clinical portion of a program. A student who is unable to complete the clinical portion of a program will not be able to graduate.

Criminal background checks, drug screenings, credit checks, and/or proof of US citizenship may also be required after graduation by examination boards, state licensing boards, and employing agencies. Pending the outcome, a graduate may be disqualified from examination eligibility, state licensure, and/or employment.
