We could not be prouder of our single-mom graduate Chelsey Gaines.  She worked very hard in our Surgical Technology Associate program and made our Dean’s List.  She is, and should be proud, of this accomplishment because she also never missed a day of class or was even late to class!  What an amazing student she was!  She worked very hard to accomplish this feat, and we are proud to have her represent us in the medical field.

What you Learn in our Surgical Technology Associate’s Program

Surgical Technicians work mostly in the operating room.  They can work on general surgeries, or they can become specialized technicians and work in fields like cardiovascular, plastic, or ortho surgery.  You can even be specialized in organ transplant!  It all starts with the classes you take.  Because Surgical Technology is an Associates program, you will take specialized courses like Medical Terms and Systems, Surgical Technology Fundamentals, and Anatomy and Physiology.  You will also complete classes in your gen eds like College Math, Written Communications, and History of American Government.  In these classes, you’ll learn things like:

  • General knowledge about Medical Terms
  • Surgery fundamentals in suture and wound healing, laser and endoscopic surgery among others, and names and identities of surgical equipment
  • In-depth study of cells and tissues in the body
  • Introduction to college level math problem solving, basic history of the American government, and basic career-level writing skills
