Respiratory Therapy & Sleep Technology
UVA Respiratory Therapists enjoy a collaborative environment in which the multidisciplinary healthcare team values and seeks input from all members.
You'll have autonomy of practice that will make it possible to both assess your patient's needs and develop an appropriate care plan in conjunction with other team members.
Utilizing innovative technology and the most advanced therapeutic interventions and procedures, you'll be challenged to expand your skills in acute, critical and diagnostic areas while experiencing invaluable professional development.
Sleep Technologists and technicians working in UVA's Sleep Disorders Center (SDC) study adult and pediatric patients referred from the Sleep, Pulmonary, Neurology and Behavioral Medicine services to UVA's eight-bed sleep lab.
The Sleep Technologists work collaboratively with the SDC Physicians and Nurse Practitioners to study patients, independently score studies and provide patient and family education regarding therapeutic interventions.
The interdisciplinary practice of UVA's AASM-accredited SDC provides the opportunity to work with a broad patient population, enhancing your professional practice.
