Surgical Technology, A.A.S.

Surgical Technology
Associate in Applied Science Degree

Surgical Technologists are experts in the theory and application of sterile and aseptic techniques. That, combined with knowledge of human anatomy, surgical procedures, and implementation tools and technologies, helps physicians perform invasive procedures. They provide surgical care under medical supervision, ensure operating rooms are safe, that equipment functions properly and that the operative procedure is conducted under conditions that maximize patient safety.

The laboratory portions of the program, which reinforce concepts learned in class, are held in our on-campus lab and in operating suites at area hospitals. Students have clinical experiences in hospitals and actively participate on operating room teams during surgery while clinical preceptors oversee their work.
