Career Center Surgical Class Fills Demand
Posted on: 02/06/2013

The Career Center’s Adult Technical Training Center recently celebrated the graduation of students from its Certified Surgical Technologist program.
 
Graduates of the Surgical Technologist program completed one year - or 1,100 hours - of training that focused on anatomy and physiology, microbiology, medical terminology, surgical procedures, pharmacology, and perioperative techniques. 
 
Career Center medical programs coordinator Lenora Lada says, “the demand for surgical technologists is expected to increase much faster than that for other professions. Hospitals will continue to be the major employers in many communities. In addition, there’s growing demand for surgical technologists in physician offices and clinics."
 
Program graduates are eligible for certification via the Association of Surgical Technologists, consisting of representative Certified Surgical Technologists, surgeons, and the public.
