ABOUT THE PROGRAM
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 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.
Upon successful completion of the program, students are qualified to take a National Certifying Examination to become a Certified Surgical Technologist (CST).
