In a surgical environment, the healthcare professionals who provide surgical care are surgical technologists.
Surgical Technologists are an important part of the operating room team. The PTC Surgical tech program will train you to work closely with surgeons, anesthesiologists, registered nurses and other surgical personnel to deliver patient care before, during and after surgery.
- The PTC Surgical Technology program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) upon the recommendation of the Accreditation Review Committee — Surgical Technology (ARC/STSA).
- PTC surgical technology students benefit from a state–of–the–industry surgical technology lab which replicates the operating room environment.
- You will learn from instructors who have worked or continue to work in the field and understand what it takes to be successful.
- PTC has an advisory board of medical professionals that guides our curriculum so you learn what the healthcare field is looking for in skills and experience.
The annual (8/1/2015-7/31/2016) CST certification rate is 79%.
