Curriculum: MHS CDS, emphasis in Respiratory Therapy

The MHS CDS program is a 30-credit, online program which is designed to be completed part-time by health care professionals. The curriculum is organized into three parts with integrated opportunities to achieve stackable credentials.

  • Interprofessional core courses (9 credits) offer practical preparation for effective team functioning.
  • Leadership electives (minimum 12 credits) offer preparation for one of three career paths:
    • Health care facilities (hospitals, clinics);
    • Higher education programs preparing entry-to-practice health care professionals (colleges, universities); or
    • Health care industry (medical equipment or pharmaceutical sales and customer support).
  • Emphasis area electives (minimum 6 credits) prepare students for one or more advanced professional credentials.
  • The program culminates in a personalized capstone project with a potential employer that is tailored to the student’s goals (3 credits).
