Surgical Technology Program

Gain the Skills You Need to Join the Surgical Team

The Blinn College District Surgical Technology Program is a two-year associate degree program that prepares students for high-demand careers as surgical technologists. Surgical technologists are integral members of the surgical team, assisting surgeons, anesthesiologists, and registered nurses in providing care to patients in the operating room and facilitating the safe and effective conduct of invasive surgical procedures.

Through the Blinn Surgical Technology Program, students engage in lecture and laboratory classrooms, clinical observation, and hands-on experience to earn their 60-hour Associate of Applied Science Degree. Through this process, students who are in good physical and mental condition and can perform under stress can gain the skills and expertise they need to meet their employers' needs.
