Surgical Technology Degree

Surgical Technologists are allied health professionals, who are an integral part of the team of medical practitioners providing surgical care to patients. Surgical technologists work under the supervision of a surgeon to facilitate the safe and effective conduct of invasive surgical procedures, ensuring that the operating room environment is safe, that equipment functions properly, and that the operative procedure is conducted under conditions that maximize patient safety. Surgical technologists possess expertise in the theory and application of sterile and aseptic technique and combine the knowledge of human anatomy, surgical procedures and implementation tools and technologies to facilitate a physicians's performance of invasive therapeutic and diagnostic procedures.

This program prepares graduates to sit for the national certification examination. The correlated clinical instruction stresses manual dexterity in using surgical instruments, the application of aseptic technique, and safe patient care with emphasis on medical ethics and legal considerations.

This is a competitive admissions program. Please see the Admissions section of the Student Handbook/Catalog for more information.
