“Faculty taught us ways we can help support our patients in a variety of ways.”
What subject did you enjoy the most during the program? What aspect of the program did you enjoy the most?
When I first started the program, I knew I was going to enjoy what I did, but I didn’t realize that it would become such a passion. Learning about medicine in general and especially about cardiopulmonary medicine has been absolutely fascinating. There is so much to learn and to know that it does get intense, but it has been so rewarding. The faculty in the Boise State Respiratory Care program is outstanding. Throughout my education, I have never felt so supported by faculty who practiced what they preached.
[callout width=475 align=center] Every faculty member loves the field of Respiratory Therapy and goes above and beyond when it comes to staying caught up on current research, practice, and knowledge. They are all huge patient advocates and they taught us ways we can help support our patients in a variety of ways.[/callout][clear][/clear]
You completed the remote clinical rotation. How did it change your perspective towards the RT profession?
I had the opportunity to do an internship at University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle. It was there that I completely fell in love with what we do as Respiratory Therapists and I knew that I had picked the right field. The best part about being an RT is the patients. Meeting patients from all different walks of life and getting to know them and learning how we can best help them is sometimes a challenge but it’s always the most rewarding aspect.
