Frequently Asked Questions
The International Association of Respiratory Therapists

I received a letter from the International Association of Respiratory Therapists. Does this mean that I am a member?

No. Receiving a letter simply means that the IAHCP Marketing and Research Department has identified you as a candidate for the International Association of Respiratory Therapists (IART). You are invited to complete a phone interview with one of our Account Directors, who will determine if you are qualified for membership.
