Respiratory Therapy Program Demonstrates Commitment to Continuous Quality Improvement in Education
The Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC) has completed their annual review of the Respiratory Therapy program at Georgia Southern University. The review is conducted as a way to ensure ongoing compliance with accreditation standards and CoARC accreditation policies and procedures. Based on the outcomes of the program, the Respiratory Therapy program has met or exceeded all currently set thresholds for success on each of the required outcome measures. The results of this review demonstrate the program’s commitment to continuous quality improvement in education.
The Respiratory Therapy program is housed in the Waters College of Health Professions Department of Diagnostic and Therapeutic Sciences and and has been accredited since its inception in 1973. The program is a four-year program leading to a Bachelor of Science. Students who earn a degree from the accredited Respiratory Therapy program are qualified for entry into the advanced practitioner credentialing system, which leads to the highest professional credential available in the field of respiratory therapy.
CoARC grants accreditation status to programs in respiratory care that have undergone a rigorous process of voluntary peer review and have met or exceeded the minimum accreditation standards.
