Respiratory Therapy Schools and Colleges

Respiratory therapists are required to hold an associate’s degree at a minimum, but most organizations prefer applicants with more education. The military, vocational colleges, community colleges, and universities and colleges offer respiratory therapy training programs. Most students graduate with a bachelor’s or associate’s degree.

All respiratory therapy students are required to complete clinical training. This way, they earn school credit while gaining practical experience.

Respiratory therapy students complete math, pharmacology, microbiology, physics, chemistry, physiology, and anatomy courses. They also learn how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), evaluate patients, and administer diagnostic tests.

High school students aspiring to work in this field can prepare by taking physics, chemistry, math, biology, and health classes.
