Bellarmine Respiratory Therapy Programs
Respiratory therapists are specialized healthcare practitioners with training and expertise in the diagnosis, treatment and management of cardiopulmonary diseases, including mechanical ventilation in emergency, critical-care and long-term care settings. Respiratory therapists are licensed and specialty board-credentialed; they work together with critical-care physicians and nurses to develop treatment strategies.
Bellarmine offers two ways to become a Respiratory Therapist: the Bachelor of Health Science and the Master of Health Science, the latter which is one of only 5 such programs in the country. Learn more below:
