Surgical Technology Program
The primary functions of a surgical technologist are to assist the surgeon and operating team, maintain the sterile field, and pass instruments. A surgical technologist can work in a hospital, outpatient surgery, private scrub for surgeons, or private companies.
Additional program requirements include passing a random drug test, completing a physical exam with a record of required immunizations before assignment to clinical sites, and the ability to withstand the physical rigors of the program. A fair but strict attendance policy is enforced during the 10-month program.
This comprehensive program includes:
- Anatomy & Physiology/Pathophysiology/Medical Terminology
- Behavioral Science/Patient Care Concepts
- Fundamentals of Surgical Technology
- Surgical Procedures
- Technological Sciences
Upon competition, graduates are eligible to sit for the national certification exam. College credits may apply directly to advance your education. Check with your university or college.
