Adults Only

This program prepares adult students to obtain employment in the medical field as a Surgical Technologist.  This is an allied health profession that trains individuals to function as a member of the surgical team in the scrub role.  The Surgical Technologist handles the instruments, supplies and equipment necessary for all surgical procedures.  They will have an understanding of each of the procedures being performed in order to anticipate the needs of the surgeon.  They will also have the necessary knowledge and ability to ensure quality patient care during the operative procedure and diligently maintain a sterile field.  As part of the O.R. team, the Surgical Technologist must work quickly and accurately with extreme attention to detail.   Since they must function under a high degree of pressure in stressful and emergency situations, a stable temperament and desire to help others is necessary.

This program is CAAHEP accredited and provides both didactic education and supervised clinical experiences based on the core curriculum for Surgical Technology.  Once a student successfully completes this program, they are qualified to take the national credentialing exam called the Certified Surgical Technologist (CST).  Upon passing the exam, they are certified and authorized to use the CST credential.

MNTC's Surgical Technologist program's educational goal is to prepare competent, entry-level surgical technologists in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains.
