Let’s “Tok” about Respiratory Therapy

Join our TikTok campaign to share the top questions you get asked as an RT or questions you think are important to answer for future RTs coming into the profession.

You might even win a prize!


To inspire the next generation of respiratory therapists into the field, we’re hosting a contest for you to help us reach them where they are — on TikTok!

Making a TikTok video is fast and easy, and you could win one of 10 prizes. Here’s how the contest works:

Create a video on your personal TikTok profile (it’s free to start an account if you don’t already have one). Your video should include the top questions you get asked as an RT or questions you think are important to answer for future RTs coming into the profession. We’re looking for inspiring content to help grow our profession for future RTs. Your video must be “family friendly” (no profanity or adult content) and should not divulge any patient identities or information and aim to help others see the value of working in respiratory therapy.

Before publishing your video, be sure to include #AskMeAboutRT, #ChooseRT and #MoreRTs. Then, come back to this webpage and complete the form at the bottom to enter for your chance to win! And, the more videos you enter, the better your chances of winning a prize – so you can submit the form again for every new video you make that promotes respiratory care.

Looking for some inspiration? Check out the sample video on this page – Mariana answers popular questions she gets asked as an RT.

This contest will close on July 14, and winners will be announced July 21. Click here for official contest rules.
