You will be an active participant in your learning experiences and work collaboratively with faculty to develop skills in critical thinking, clinical and ethical decision-making, and therapeutic and professional communication.

You will complete your supervised clinical learning at various Twin Cities hospitals, including:

  • University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview
  • Hennepin County Medical Center
  • Methodist Hospital
  • Abbott Northwestern Hospital
  • North Memorial Health Care
  • Children’s Hospitals and Clinics

You will also participate in real-life learning experiences in home-based respiratory care through our affiliations with agencies such as Pediatric Home Services.
