Surgical Technology

Why Choose the Surgical Technology Program?

Surgery is a delicate process that requires a whole team to function properly. The role of the surgical technologist is to help the procedure go as smoothly and efficiently as possible by anticipating each move the surgeon is going to make. They have to have extensive knowledge about countless surgical procedures, instruments required for the procedure, and the steps the surgeon will take in the operating room.

Our Surgical Technology program offers students hands-on training in a combination of classroom, laboratory and clinical settings. The health care field is constantly evolving and maintains a fast pace with a constant need to adapt to patient and surgeon needs and a willingness to learn new things.

Our graduates are educated under the guidelines of the Association of Surgical Technologists.
