Surgical Technology

Surgical technologists are allied health professionals, who are an integral part of the team of medical practitioners providing surgical care to patients. Surgical technologists work under the supervision of a surgeon to facilitate the safe and effective conduct of invasive surgical procedures, ensuring that the operating room environment is safe, that equipment functions properly, and that the operative procedure is conducted under conditions that maximize patient safety. Surgical technologists hold more than 93,600 jobs nationwide, with approximately 70 percent of jobs in medical and surgical hospitals. Surgical technology is one of the fastest growing professions in the country and is projected to grow faster than the average of other occupations and job opportunities are best for graduates who are certified and hold the CST credential. Montgomery County Community College has an AAS degree program in this field that is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs.
