What does a Surgical Technologist do?
Surgical Technologists play an important role as part of the medical team providing surgical care.
Surgical Technologists prepare both the patient and the operating room for surgeries; sterilize equipment and instruments; pass instruments to surgeons during surgery; assist the surgical team by holding organs in place or using retractors during the surgery, and dress the wound and transfer patients to recovery rooms.
Join our Surgical Technologist program!
Our experienced Surgical Technologist faculty combine classroom instruction and hands-on learning – in one of our Surg Tech labs – to fully prepare students to be successful in any Operating Room.
With opportunities at area hospitals, every student is required to complete a 500-hour externship to hone their skills in a real operating room working on real patients. Under the guidance of an experienced Surgical Technologist Instructor, students on externship gain the experience they need to enter this profession with confidence!
All graduates will be prepared to sit for the National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (NBSTSA) certification (our faculty even holds special study sessions to prepare YOU for your certification).
