Surgical Technology Certificate Program
The Surgical Technology Certificate Program is designed to give individuals the knowledge and skills required to function within an operating room environment. Students receive surgical technology training during classroom lectures, practice in a mock surgical lab and get clinical experience in various hospitals’ operating rooms.
Surgical technologists are an important part of a surgical team working closely with surgeons, anesthesiologists, registered nurses and other surgical personnel. Surgical technologists help supply the operating room with the instruments, equipment and supplies that will be needed during a surgical procedure.
The program prepares students for the National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (NBSTSA) certification exam. Successful candidates demonstrate their theoretical and practical knowledge of surgical technology and are granted the designation of Certified Surgical Technologist (CST). The program has been accredited through 2015 by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP), through the Accreditation Review Committee on Education in Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (ARC/STSA).
