The University of Southern Indiana offers a two-year program in respiratory therapy, culminating in an Associate of Science degree. All core curriculum courses and most respiratory therapy courses are given at the University campus. Clinical training is provided at Deaconess Hospital, Gateway, Community Methodist, Owensboro, Select, Vincennes, and St. Mary's Medical Center, under qualified medical supervision. The combination of academic work, clinical rotations, and physician contact provides the student with an intense preparation necessary for an exciting, rewarding career as a respiratory therapist. Enrollment is limited and applications to the program should be submitted before April 1 of the year the applicant desires entrance into the program.
The University Core Curriculum has been revised as of Fall 2014, which will result in curriculum changes for the major. When these changes are made information will be posted on the program’s website and in future editions of the University Bulletin.
