The OTC Surgical Technology Program prepares students to work in healthcare settings as surgical technologists. Surgical technologists are allied health professionals who are an integral part of the surgical team. They aid surgeons by assembling sterile fields for procedures, passing them instruments in a timely manner and assisting with patient transport. Their ultimate job is to ensure surgical equipment functions properly and that the procedure is conducted under safe conditions.
The minimum expectations of our Surgical Technology program goals and outcomes are to prepare competent, entry-level surgical technologists in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavioral) learning domains.
The coursework is a combination of classroom learning and clinical application. Students will learn proper instrument sterilization techniques, how to process operating room turnover, and their role during surgery as a first or second scrub tech.
Graduates earn an Associate of Applied Science degree in Surgical Technology Our graduates typically find work in hospital operating rooms, outpatient clinics or physicians’ offices upon graduation.
The Surgical Technology Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs.
