The Surgical Technology Program began in the early 1950s in response to the need for qualified individuals to work in the hospital’s operating rooms. As a Surgical Technologist you will be responsible for working with the surgeons, anesthesiologists, and the circulating nurses to prepare the operating room with equipment, instruments and supplies for any operative procedure; anticipating and providing for the needs of the surgeon; maintaining aseptic technique during the procedure; and preparing the instruments for reprocessing.
A Surgical Technologist is accurate and sets high standards of practice. They must possess a high degree of manual dexterity, good eye-hand coordination and be adaptable to changing technology in a fast-paced environment. Individuals who choose the surgical technology profession are deeply committed to quality patient-focused care and working as a team member in a highly specialized area.
