ardiopulmonary science is a branch of medical science relating to the heart and lungs. A 4-year degree program is designed to provide students with the laboratory experience, didactic classroom training, and clinical internship necessary to work in the respiratory care field at a healthcare facility. A cardiopulmonary science degree program allows students to choose from a particular concentration or track, such as respiratory therapy or cardiovascular technology. Each track provides students with a background in patient assessment, cardiopulmonary anatomy, and medical ethics.
College students interested in majoring in cardiopulmonary science are first required to complete general education courses while maintaining a 2.5 GPA. Some schools also accept transfer students who have completed an associate's degree in another field and who are interested in gaining a baccalaureate degree in cardiopulmonary science. Others schools only accept registered respiratory therapists interested in advancing in their careers. Bachelor's degree programs in cardiopulmonary science include courses designed to provide aspiring cardiovascular professionals with practical training while at the same time furnishing them with a background in general education. Courses include:
Introduction to cardiopulmonary science
Cardiopulmonary anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology
