“You can do whatever you put your mind to”.  These words guided Surgical Tech Graduate Germille Rahman to her new career.  As a 40-year-old single mother-of-two with an ailing mother to take care of herself, she stated “failure was not an option”.  She rose to the occasion at Stautzenberger - expanding on the knowledge she’s already gained by being in the medical field since she was 17 years old.

What you Learn in Surgical Technology

Surgical Tech is a full Associate’s program, so while you learn specialized knowledge about surgical procedures, you also learn typical general education requirements like History of American Government and Life Sciences.  More importantly, you are introduced to the specific knowledge you need for success as a Surgical Technician with classes like Anatomy and Physiology, Advanced Operating Room Skills, and Clinical Externships.  In these classes, you will learn:

  • A history of the laws we’ve used to govern on local, state and federal levels
  • A general knowledge of biological science with a focus on interdependence of various organisms and the environment
  • An in-depth study of cellular structures, tissues, and division
  • A continuing study of the structure of the organs and the body
  • Instruction on correct pre- and post- operative procedures
  • A detailed experience in the field where you begin by observing then move to performing under supervision in the operating room
