Can You Picture Yourself Working in an Operating Room?

Surgical technologyThe Surgical Technology program at our Voorhees, NJ and Dover, DE campuses prepares students for working in surgical and other clinical settings

If you are the type of person who thrives in a fast-paced setting, a career as a surgical technologist could be a good fit for you. Surgical technologists play an important role in the field of healthcare by providing assistance in surgical settings.

Surgical technologists are also called operating room technicians, and are often responsible for helping to prepare operating rooms, arrange surgical equipment, and assist doctors and nurses during surgeries. Surgical technologists can work in a number of environments, such as hospitals, outpatient surgery centers, or specialty hospitals.

The Harris School of Business offers the Surgical Technology program at two campuses: Our Voorhees, NJ campus is located in South Jersey, not far from the Philadelphia area. Our Dover, DE campus is conveniently located near Dover’s downtown area.

The curriculum for the Surgical Technology program provides students with important courses such as sterile technique, pharmacology, and anesthesia, as well as opportunities for hands-on learning. Students also have the opportunity to put their new skills to use during an externship.

Gilberto Solano, extern coordinator for the Surgical Technology program at the Voorhees campus, recently demonstrated some of the hands-on learning that students get to experience, such as working with the mock knee shown in the photograph. Students learn about the anatomy of the knee joint, as well as common surgeries such as knee repair and replacement. This is just one of the many ways that students get to work with hands-on healthcare-related equipment and technology as they learn their new career field.
