Organisation profile

United States established in 1949 "Association of Inhalation Therapy", which later renamed as the “American Society of Respiratory Care", so medical experts started paying attention to "inbreathing" and related research and legislation. According to the America Association of Respiratory Care (AARC’s) definition, respiratory therapy is considered a medical profession in which doctor diagnosis, treat and hospitalize patient in term of cardio respiratory defects or abnormal. At present, the United States has over 50 schools set up with respiratory therapy departments. In the old time domestically, Republic of China Society of Respiratory Care has been training respiratory therapy professionals informally. In recent years, with the healthcare system professionalizing, home respiratory therapy is in the rapid development stage.

Our country passed and implemented the respiratory therapy law in January 91th year of Republic Era, which stated that only public, licensed, independent colleges or foreign universities, foreign independent college’s respiratory care, respiratory therapy department, groups, departments in line with the provisions of the Ministry of education doctorate that completed practical training, reached satisfactory grade, and passed medical license exam can conduct respiratory therapy business. Hereafter, respiratory therapists are trained by a formal education system to enhance the quality of care. Our school gained permission from bureau of education in 90th year of Republic Era to establish two years In-service Respiratory Therapeutics Program under the Faculty of Medicine, founded the first Respiratory Therapeutics University Department in the country in 92th year of Republic Era. Every year our students’ passing rate for the license exam is as high as 90 per cent, and those who graduated have high employment rate. We sincerely hope to enhance respiratory therapists’ professional status through the formal university education and comprehensive training program.
