The Surgical Technology Program is a five-semester associate degree program and is composed of classroom study, laboratory skills, and clinical experience. Students will learn aseptic technique, surgical instrumentation, surgical suite equipment, operative procedures, anatomy, medical terminology, pharmacology, and microbiology. Three semesters of clinical rotations give the student opportunities to apply theory into practice to enable students to gain essential surgical skills. Upon graduation, students will take the national certification exam administered through the National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (NBSTSA) to become Certified Surgical Technologist.
The Surgical Technology program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) upon the recommendation of the Accreditation Review Committee on Education in Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (ARC‐STSA).
