What is this course about?
The primary aim of the Graduate Certificate in Respiratory Science is to provide a knowledge base and appropriate training for technical, nursing and scientific staff of hospitals, universities, private clinics and associated workplaces involved in respiratory diagnostics.
The Graduate Certificate in Respiratory Science was the first specialist training course for respiratory professionals in Australasia other than exposure to the area through general undergraduate teaching or workplace experience. In addition to training for those currently employed in the industry, there will be provision for entry by those wishing to commence a career in respiratory science.
Training will be of a practical nature, with direct application to the workplace and with significant relevance to health services and respiratory research.
