The Surgical Technology Program will be giving a tour of their labs on Tuesday, October 3 at 4:45pm at St. John’s Hospital (2018 Pullium, wait in the lobby near the cafeteria). This will be an excellent opportunity to meet the program chair and find out what it is like to work alongside the surgeon in an always evolving environment.

The Surgical Technology Program is a two-year program leading to an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree, once accepted, that offers college credit, beginning in the fall of each year. The program is approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and is fully accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP). Upon completion, students may earn a professional credential by passing a nationally administered certifying examination by the National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (NBSTSA). Those who pass the exam become certified and are granted the designation of Certified Surgical Technologist (CST) and will be granted permission to work throughout the United States of America.
