Goal of the Respiratory Therapy Program

The Department of Respiratory Therapy at the University of Manitoba prepares generalist Respiratory Therapists with the knowledge, skills, standards, and attributes required for entry into the profession.

Graduates demonstrate an understanding of the societal context in which the profession is practiced. They are able to make sound judgments and can examine issues critically, rationally, and coherently, in light of that context. They are engendered with an interest and a concern for improving the body of knowledge of the profession. They are guided by the value of life-long learning as a fundamental precept of personal development and the enhancement of the profession.
