Students with surgical tech programs from Advanced College are aiming for careers as surgical technologists, surgical scrub technicians, operating room technologists, endoscopic technologists and more. They must be prepared to serve a wide array of functions in these medical environments. Surgical tech jobs are often focused on making procedures run smoothly, ensuring that the doctor has easy access to equipment, and performing practices that maintain sterilization and safety while the doctor works. The important role surgical technologists play in potentially life-saving operations can be a major factor in choosing this exciting career field.
Students attending surgical tech schools will need to take classes in human anatomy, as well as medical terminology, and will need a well-rounded education including an understanding of psychology and mathematics. Much of this general education is available to students through online classes. As with all surgical technologist schools, many of the courses involved in surgical tech programs must be taken in a medical setting, in person.
