Caylie Sheridan is IPG Laboratory alumnus who received a scholarship from CoBGRTE, an organization that serves to increase the graduation rate from respiratory care programs!
“I have always had an interest in human physiology and, more specifically, respiratory physiology. I graduated from The University of Iowa in May 2020 with a Bachelor of Science in Human Physiology. During my time at Iowa, I was given the opportunity to be a research assistant in the Integrative Pathophysiology and Genetics Laboratory. I studied the effects of chest wall strapping on COPD patients. This is when I was introduced to respiratory therapy and knew I wanted to pursue respiratory care for my graduate education. I am currently a master’s student at Rush University Medical Center in the Respiratory Care Program. After graduating from Rush, I hope to become a registered respiratory therapist and continue my education to obtain a doctorate degree. Ultimately, I want to become a professor teaching respiratory care and a principal investigator. In addition, I have a great interest in critical care medicine and patient education. As a future respiratory therapist and educator, I hope to inspire future generations to pursue a career in respiratory care!”
You have made such an accomplishment and we are so very happy for you!
