Surgical Technologist

This course series prepares students to take the national certification exam to become a certified surgical technologist.

Surgical Technologists play an integral role in the surgical team in both hospitals and surgi-centers. Under the supervision of a surgeon, responsibilities include room preparation, surgical equipment and supply set-up, and patient transport. They also assist the surgical team with putting on sterile gloves/gowns and passing instruments and other sterile supplies during procedures.
