The Surgical Technology Program prepares graduates to function as members of the surgical team. A surgical technologist works as a member of the operating room patient-care team along with medical doctors, registered nurses, other technologists, orderlies and housekeeping staff. The role of the surgical technologist is specifically focused on the application of aseptic technique and the tools of modern technology to patient care.
The degree plan combines classroom teaching with supervised clinical experience for the surgical technologist. The student will receive information in anatomy and physiology, microbiology, pharmacology, surgical pathology and surgical procedures along with the standard practices involved in surgical technology.
