GEORGIA STATE’S UNDERGRADUATE respiratory therapy students push themselves to succeed. For seven years running, they achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) exam, surpassing the national average for all students taking the RRT exam.
“Since 2009, when the RT program required all graduates to earn the RRT before graduation, we have had 100% of students achieve this status. This is remarkable work by the students and faculty,” says Doug Gardenhire, chair of the Department of Respiratory Therapy.
