Respiratory Therapy Education and Research at UPMC
Clinical Respiratory Therapy Education
UPMC is dedicated to providing our respiratory therapists with opportunities for advanced clinical education.
- Our partnership with the Peter M. Winter Institute for Simulation, Education, and Research (WISER) enables us to be leaders in the use of simulation-based medical education and training.
- Our unique “in-house” physician lecture and continuing education unit program allows respiratory therapy staff to meet Pennsylvania state licensing requirements and learn from some of the world’s best physicians.
- Our respiratory therapy school was one of the first in the United States to be approved by the American Medical Association.
This commitment to being an educational resource has continued to this day, with UPMC serving as a clinical training site for six respiratory therapy programs.
Respiratory Therapy Research
Our close association with the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine (PACCM) at the University of Pittsburgh provides numerous opportunities for respiratory therapists interested in research.
Our research initiatives have resulted in many respiratory publications and UPMC therapists have presented abstracts at the open forum of the American Association for Respiratory Care Congress and the Society for Critical Care Medicine.
