What is Respiratory Care?Student conducts lung capacity test

Respiratory care is a specialized area of health care that works closely with individuals suffering from breathing and cardiac disorders. Respiratory therapists are trained on advanced medical equipment and work closely with patients to help them manage their conditions.

Our Program

The Boise State respiratory care program is rigorous and exciting with hands-on classroom education, laboratory instruction and clinical experiences in local hospitals that create a robust and realistic educational experience. There are three different tracks: a Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Care for students new to the field, an online program designed to help registered respiratory therapists complete their B.S. degree remotely, and a fully online Master of Science in Respiratory Care for students to focus on educational leadership.
