Surgical technologists are an integral part of the surgical team, assisting surgeons, anesthesiologists, and registered nurses in providing care to patients in the operating room. The surgical technologist works under medical supervision to facilitate the safe and effective conduct of invasive surgical procedures. This individual ensures that the operating room or environment is safe, that equipment functions properly, and that the operative procedure is conducted under conditions that maximize patient safety.
Students interested in the program should be in good physical and mental condition, be able to perform under stress, and possess manual dexterity. The Blinn College Surgical Technology Program is a two-year associate degree program. The program includes hours of clinical observation and experience in the operating room as well as lecture and laboratory classes. After successful completion of the required curriculum, students earn a degree in applied science.Contact Us
