Surgical Technology is a fundamental career path that is projected to grow by 12% by 2026 and is now being offered in our Austin campus. Surgical Technologists are essential individuals in the operating room that prepare patients and equipment for surgery. Our hands-on approach is designed to provide our students with all the necessary skills to succeed in this fast-growing and in-demand field. We’ll get you from the classroom to the operating room in a little over a year and a half.
Through our program, Surgical Technology students will learn what surgical technicians are expected to do on the job and are trained in the care and safety of patients, sterilization techniques, how to set up technical or robotic equipment, and preventing and controlling infections. In addition to classroom study, students also work in supervised clinical settings to gain hands-on experience. At the end of the program, students will be required to take the National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting certification exam required to work in the field.
Classes begin on July 8, 2019. To enroll visit the Surgical Technology program page and fill out the information request form.
The program is 80 weeks long.
