Surgical technologists are members of the operating room team with surgeon(s), anesthesiologist and circulating nurses. Before surgery, surgical technologists assemble the sterile equipment, check to ensure it is all working properly and make adjustments as necessary.
Surgical technologists responsibilities include assisting the surgeon with putting on their gown and gloves, and assisting in placing the sterile drapes on the patient to create the sterile field. During the surgical procedure, the surgical technologist is responsible for anticipating the needs of the surgeon by passing instruments and providing needed supplies such as sponges, performing counts of the instruments, and receiving tissue specimens, and ensuring there are no breaks in sterile technique.
In the Surgical Technology Program you will learn to be an integral part of the surgical suite delivering patient care. A primary role of the surgical technologists is to be the surgical team’s experts in aseptic technique.
Your training at MTECH will focus on the basics of surgical technology, microbiology, infection control, asepsis, and surgical techniques.
The Surgical Technology Program is accredited by COE.
