Course Overview

Emerging environmental issues, recent technological advances, and a growing elderly population are escalating the need for skilled respiratory therapists. To be successful, today’s respiratory care leaders must be skilled educators, practitioners, and case managers. In response, Northeastern University's College of Professional Studies has developed the Master of Science in Respiratory Care Leadership. Created for practicing respiratory therapists, this master’s degree in respiratory care incorporates an action-learning approach that builds leadership competencies and advances your clinical knowledge. Core respiratory care courses cover areas such as advanced cardiopulmonary physiology and research design. In addition, you will have the opportunity to focus your studies in one of six concentrations: health management, higher education administration, adult and organizational learning, nonprofit management, regulatory affairs, and clinical trial design. I want to find another Master Course Program Objectives Develop and evaluate strategies for appointment to leadership positions Prepare and evaluate plans for career advancement Evaluate the leadership challenges facing the respiratory therapy industry Describe and interpret statistical tests applied to medical research data Apply evidence-based medicine to clinical practice Review and evaluate published research Analyze and apply research-based evidence Evaluate respiratory therapists’ evolving roles and responsibilities Compare and contrast the political and economic factors that affect the field of respiratory therapy Career Outlook While the overall respiratory care industry is expected to grow at a much-faster-than-average pace, those with advanced degrees will enjoy the best job prospects. The vast majority of respiratory therapy jobs will continue to be in hospitals, but the American Association of Respiratory Care indicates that opportunities to move from a clinical to an academic setting should be plentiful over the next several years, particularly for those with graduate degrees. How Recent Graduates Have Fared: Past students have served as president of their state’s Society for Respiratory Care Former students have presented research abstracts and technical papers, served in the American Association of Respiratory Care House of Delegates, and written examination questions for the National Board for Respiratory Care A 2009 graduate, Keith Hirst, MS, RRT-NPS, has been appointed to an assistant professor position at Rush University in Chicago.
