Become a surgical technologist in 10 months

Change your life by earning great pay and benefits!

Surgical Technologists, also referred to as OR techs, have the knowledge and skills needed to function as a member of the surgical team, delivering patient care and assuming appropriate responsibilities before, during, and after surgery.

Instruction is provided in principles of aseptic techniques, patient care, supplies and equipment, basic sciences and professional preparation.

In the operating room (OR) surgical techs prepare patients for surgery, set up surgical instruments/equipment, pass sterile supplies/instruments to surgeons, and ensure the integrity of the sterile field throughout the procedure.

Outside the OR you may manage central supply departments, evaluate products, or go into medical sales.

All applicants are required to attend Behind Surgery Doors, an information session with the instructor, in the Surgical Technology Classroom.

Surg Tech schools have a competitive admission process. Taking Medical Terminology I & II will add points to your applications and increase your overall score.
