Coalition for Baccalaureate and Graduate Respiratory Therapy Education


Welcome to the CoBGRTE Web Site!

 

The Coalition for Baccalaureate and Graduate Respiratory Therapy Education (CoBGRTE) is organized to help students, faculty members, and the general public learn about baccalaureate and graduate respiratory therapy education in the United States. A roster of baccalaureate and graduate respiratory therapy programs provides contact and basic information on: location, program director, medical director, curriculum design, entering class size, start dates, and provides a link to each program's web site. The CoBGRTE Roster also serves as a communication tool for faculty members developing new baccalaureate and graduate respiratory therapy programs. Students and faculty members are encouraged to visit program web sites and to contact each program directly for additional information.
