Respiratory care is a professional technique in the practice of acute or critical respiratory disease treatment, as well as outpatient or long-term care. In order to improve the quality of respiratory care and to meet the trends of healthcare development, CGUST has established the Department of Respiratory Care, which is the first such department to be established among the technological institutes in Taiwan. The goals of the Department of Respiratory Care are to design professional curricula, focus on fundamental clinical skills and experiences, develop students’ ethical behaviors and their professional virtues, and prepare students to be qualified respiratory care professionals.
The features of the Department of Respiratory Care are as follows:
1. The curriculum is specifically designed to integrate theory and practice. Students participate in practical training in highly-ranked hospitals in Taiwan to develop their competency in clinical skills.
3. Our teaching labs are designed to replicate clinical laboratories. Students are skillfully trained to use respiratory care equipment.
4. The Department offers two concentrations: Respiratory Care and Long-term Care. Students may specialize in one area of concentration.
