The life of a surgical patient depends in a very large part on the diligence and competence of the surgical technologist. The Surgical Technology program trains students in the skills necessary to assist in providing surgical care to patients.
Surgical Technologists work under the supervision of a surgeon to assist in the safe and effective care during surgical procedures, ensuring that the operating room environment is safe, that equipment is in proper working order, and that the procedure is conducted under the highest standards of patient safety. The courses are taught by instructors who are current and former industry professionals eager to provide the student with real-world insights into the subjects they teach.
The goal of the Surgical Technology Program is to prepare entry-level Surgical Technologists who are competent in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains to enter the profession. The instruction includes a robust academic curriculum for Surgical Technology education that encompasses: learner-based theoretical education, inter-professional education, simulation education, health care competency assessment and clinical education. The Surgical Technology program is located on the Southfield campus.
Occupational Exposure/ Risk: Applicants considering a career in Surgical Technology should be aware that during their course of study and in subsequent employment in the field, they are likely to work in situations where exposure to infectious disease is possible. This is an occupational risk for all healthcare workers. Persons should not become healthcare workers unless they recognize and accept this risk. Proper education and strict adherence to well-established infection-control guidelines can reduce the risk to a minimum. Thorough education in infection control procedures is an important part of the Surgical Technology program of study.
