Curriculum C317C



The Triton College Surgical Technology Program prepares the student to work as part of a team providing surgical patient care. Surgical technologists most often function in the scrub role, but their responsibilities may include a variety of duties before, during and after surgery.  The Program includes theory, simulation laboratory, and clinical components.  Students receive supervised experience at several cooperating area hospitals.

A variety of employment opportunities exist in hospitals, surgical centers, birthing centers and other health care agencies. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that the need for surgical technologists will increase by approximately 15% between now and 2024.
