Students will work with surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses and other members of the surgical team. Upon successful completion of the career major, graduates may be eligible to take the National Surgical Technology Certification exam, which allows them to be employed as Certified Surgical Technologists.

Classroom hours are generally Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Class and clinical hours may vary and the potential exists for some limited learning opportunities that can only be offered in the evening or during the weekend.

Students will participate in a minimum of 120 surgical procedures as set forth in the core curriculum for Surgical Technology, 6th Ed. The Surgical Technology program is approximately 10 months in length. Classes begin every August.
