Surgical Technology

The Associate of Science degree in Surgical Technology at City College prepares students for entry-level positions in the exciting surgical technology field. Surgical technologists assist in surgeries under the supervision of surgeons, registered nurses or other surgical personnel. They are vital members of operating room teams, which most commonly include surgeons, anesthesiologists and circulating nurses.

You’ll study anatomy, physiology, and surgical procedures and techniques, and develop your professional and patient interaction skills. Students get valuable, hands-on experience working in our industry-current labs and during surgical technologist externships in real-world healthcare environments.
