The Respiratory Therapy three-year diploma program graduates healthcare professionals who can contribute to the diagnosis and treatment of lung disorders. Most respiratory therapists work in hospitals in neonatal nurseries, operating rooms, intensive care units, general wards, pulmonary function labs and emergency departments.
The first phase of the program is academic. The second phase is specialized, with classroom and laboratory sessions, and weekly assignments at Hamad Medical Corporation. The third phase involves practical aspects designed to show students how to work as respiratory therapists in a clinical setting.
