Respiratory Therapists work in clinical and hospital settings, home care environments, intensive care units, emergency rooms, diagnostic laboratories and skilled patient care centers. The Respiratory Care program at College of DuPage is an intensive, full-time, two-year program leading to an Associate in Applied Science degree. Students learn through a combination of classroom instruction and hands-on clinical practice three days a week at local hospital affiliates. The job outlook for Certified and Registered Therapists is excellent. Continuing our journey down the Road to Success, Images explores the career opportunities available for students studying Respiratory Care.
