"Respiratory Therapy provides students with the resources they need to grow, learn, develop new skills and, ultimately, to succeed. 
The educators encourage conversation among the students creating an interactive environment thus creating a positive learning experience. 
I feel honoured to have been given the opportunity to gain knowledge taught by remarkable educators both in class and out on clinical placements. 
I feel that this program has prepared me well and am excited to begin my career as a Respiratory Therapist!"

"The Respiratory Therapy degree program at the University of Manitoba has given me a vast amount of knowledge to employ in my respiratory therapy career. I loved how many opportunities were presented and helped me strengthen my skills not only in the health care field, but also in communication and leadership. The clinical rotations in third year reinforced material I learned. I feel I completed the program as a competent respiratory therapist ready to provide exceptional patient care."
