Breathtaking rewards. Unparalleled patient challenges.
A career as a UCLA Respiratory Therapist is an invitation and an opportunity to rise to the pinnacle of your discipline at one of the top healthcare systems in the country. The pace is exhilarating, and stakes are demanding.
Performing a multitude of procedures, you’ll make assessments and assist in critical treatments not seen elsewhere in the Western U.S. Many patients seek out UCLA from halfway around the world. That means, quite often, you’ll be working with patients whose acuity is higher and diagnosis is more complex than you’ve encountered before in your career.
The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is where the vast majority of our Respiratory Therapists make their greatest impact. We also encourage RTs interested in our advanced Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) to begin training for this vital area.
