Being an RT at CVPH means you are never alone, if there is a challenge, we face it together. Working here you’re not just another medical professional in scrubs, you are part of a tight knit medical family.”

“As respiratory therapists, we see patients all over the hospital. From stabilizing preemies in the NICU to treating asthma patients in ER to caring for patients with chronic lung diseases like COPD, Cystic Fibrosis and interstitial lung disease in the ICUs and inpatient floors, we are everywhere. I chose to be a respiratory therapist because of the variety of patients we see and the many different modalities we use to treat the members of our community. One of my favorite parts of being a respiratory therapist at UVMMC is my coworkers, we all learn from one another and that helps provide the best care for our patients. Being a respiratory therapist at UVMMC means you will have a supportive staff that provides a great learning environment in a rewarding career field!”
