As we continue to grow our services, we have more opportunities than ever before for pharmacy and respiratory care professionals:

Respiratory Careers

Working in our Respiratory Care Services Department means being part of a team that offers a full spectrum of services in diverse practice settings, including five critical care units, an active emergency department (Level 1 Trauma Care), clinics and general care. Our practitioners implement care protocols covering pulmonary hygiene, medication administration and mechanical ventilation.

You'll use state-of-the-art ventilators, computers and respiratory care diagnostic and therapeutic equipment to ensure you have the best tools to meet the needs of every patient. What's more, all care is documented using a computer-based charting system.

As an academic medical center, we're proud to offer you the opportunity to cross-train and develop your expertise in new areas. These include assisting in bronchoscopies in our dedicated bronchoscope suite as well as training in the pulmonary function laboratory. Finally, we also support continuing education for experienced practitioners and new graduates through Continuing Education Units and tuition assistance.

Education Requirements

Experienced RCPs must have completed a two-year or four-year American Medical Association-approved respiratory care program and have an associate's degree or equivalent. We also require one to three years of clinical respiratory care experience including at least two years of critical care respiratory experience. A California Respiratory Care Practitioner (RCP) license is required, along with certifications in Acute Care Life Support (ACLS) and Basic Life Support (BLS). New graduates are fully encouraged to apply for open positions.
