All 2+2 students begin the program fall semester after completing a core curriculum. The program consists of five semesters and includes classroom and clinical education.

Only 18% of therapists have a B.S. in Respiratory Therapy. Therapists with a B.S. are able to work in fields such as pharmaceutical sales or management which command higher salaries.
