These are only two of the four remaining Information Sessions that will be held prior the June 30 deadline for application for the cohort session starting Fall, 2022. The final information sessions will be held Thursday, May 26, at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. using the same log in information.
“These information sessions are a great opportunity for prospective students to attend, especially if they are interested in starting classes at MCCC this summer or for admission into the Fall 2022 RT program,” said Dr. Ijaz Ahmed, respiratory therapy program director. "There are three pre-admission courses students also need to take including Math 151 Intermediate Algebra, Biology 151 Biological Sciences I and Biology 257 Anatomy and Physiology I. Students can get a head start on their studies for the program by taking these courses in the Summer 2022 semester that begins May 9, 2022."
During the session, participants can learn about respiratory therapy careers, including job duties, employment outlook and classes needed to enter the program. Respiratory Therapy Program faculty will be available to answer questions. Prospective students can also earn a point toward admission into the program by attending. More information about the application process can be found at www.monroeccc.edu/programs/respiratory-therapy.
“The MCCC RT program is recognized as one of the best in the state of Michigan and the United States. We are a recipient of the Distinguished Credentialing Success Award from the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care and 100 percent of our students have passed the CRT credential exam and 98% have passed the RRT exam in the past three years,” said Ahmed. “We currently have articulation agreements with University of Michigan-Flint, Eastern Michigan University and University of Toledo that make transferring to a four-year institution to pursue a bachelor’s degree quite easy. And we plan to secure even more articulation agreements in the near future."
