First Batch of Bsc. Respiratory Students Travel to the USA

Nine students and a faculty of the BSc. Respiratory Therapy Programme in the School of Biomedical and Allied Health Sciences, College of Health Sciences have left the country for a month’s exchange programme at the University of Kansas Medical Centre in the United States of America. Speaking prior to their departure, the Course Representative Ms. Dorothy Honny thanked the Department, Management of the School, the College Administration and more especially Ecobank Ghana for their support in making their journey a reality. She pledged on behalf of her colleagues their preparedness to learn hard to improve the skills they have acquired so far in their studies. The Programme Coordinator, Dr. Esther Brobbey reminded the students that they were not embarking on a holiday or sight-seeing trip, rather it was part of their clinical training so they should take full advantage and learn hard. She urged them to be good ambassadors of the Department, School, College, and the University. The BSc. Respiratory Therapy is a newly introduced four-year Bachelor of Science degree programme at the school of Biomedical and Allied Health Sciences, College of Health Sciences, University of Ghana. The programme aims to produce professionals of the highest standards to manage and care for patients with cardiopulmonary (heart and lung) diseases and their associated complications. It is the first of its kind in Ghana and West Africa.
