Program Options
Associate of Applied Science Degree
Surgical technologists are allied health professionals, who are
an integral part of the team of medical practitioners providing
surgical care to patients. Surgical technologists work under
the supervision of a surgeon to facilitate the safe and effective
conduct of invasive surgical procedures, ensuring that the
operating room environment is safe, that equipment functions
properly, and that the operative procedure is conducted under
conditions that maximize patient safety. Surgical
technologists possess expertise in the theory and application of
sterile and aseptic technique and combine the knowledge of
human anatomy, surgical procedures, and implementation tools
and technologies to facilitate a physician’s performance of
invasive therapeutic and diagnostic procedures. (Association of
Surgical Technologists’ Recommenced Standards of Practice)
Intended Learning Outcomes
• Provide a safe, efficient, and supportive environment for the
surgical patient.
