Summary

The "essentials" for programs in inhalation therapy were studied by the American Society of Anesthesiologists and the American College of Chest Physicians and adopted by several pilot schools between 1957 and 1962. Recommended with minor modifications, they were approved by the American Medical Association Council on Medical Education and the House of Delegates in 1962. Revised in 1967, the "essentials" are organized into the areas of administration, faculty, facilities, requirements for admission, health, curriculum, ethics, and admission to the list of approved schools. A program may be established in a medical school or a hospital and didactic and laboratory work may be conducted in these types of institutions or in community colleges or nursing schools. Clinical training must be offered in accredited hospitals. The program director must be a physician who has had specific training or experience in inhalation therapy and instructors should be registered inhalation therapists who have had at least three years experience. Enrollment should not exceed five students to each instructor for clinical practice and at least four students should be enrolled in each class. At least 18 months in length, the program should include a minimum of 1,800 clock hours of instruction in theory and practice. (JK)
