1 Respiratory Therapy Associate in Science Degree This program provides students with a strong academic foundation and the clinical proficiency to utilize modern respiratory devices (under the direction of a physician) in the treatment of respiratory and cardiac ailments. In the fall 1996 semester, East Los Angeles College and Santa Monica College merged their respective Respiratory Therapy programs. This partnership provides increased access to medical and related clinical resources for students. Under the merged program, all prerequisite science courses and the First Year Respiratory Therapy theory courses (with the exception of Respiratory Therapy 2, which must be taken at ELAC) can be taken at either campus. All second year Respiratory Therapy courses are taken on the ELAC campus. Upon completion of the second year, students must then petition their originating campus for their Associate Degree. For entry into the Program, students must submit an Application for Admission and meet the prerequisite requirements described below. The Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC) nationally accredits respiratory care programs. The Respiratory Care Board of California, under the California Department of Consumer Affairs, licenses respiratory care practitioners.
