Both of the University of Missouri School of Health Professions respiratory therapy programs recently received the Apex Recognition Award from the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC). Mizzou operates bachelor’s degree programs with an emphasis in respiratory therapy in Columbia and at Mercy Hospital in St. Louis. These two programs join only seven others among 436 accredited entry-level programs to earn this recognition in 2021.
“The Apex Recognition Awards recognize our promotion of high-quality education and evidence-based medicine,” said Kathy Moss, department chair of Clinical and Diagnostic Sciences and professor of respiratory therapy in the School of Health Professions. “The award showcases the University of Missouri’s commitment to excellence in workforce preparation for respiratory therapists.”
