Surgical Technology

Surgical Technology provides you with 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 an information session with the instructor in the Surgical Technology Classroom.

I will not allow students from other programs in our department. It’s just not worth the stress when the Central Tech students are so much better prepared.
