Begin a career in respiratory therapy
(1-22-02)

The demand for respiratory therapists is expected to increase 42.6 percent through the year 2008. Respiratory therapists help patients with heart and lung problems, and they are vital members of a hospital's lifesaving response team.

The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio offers a bachelor of science degree known for helping students develop into advanced-level clinicians. Graduates have a 100 percent job-placement rate. Applications are being accepted through May 15 for the program beginning in August. Call (210) 567-8850 for more information.
