More than 80% of surgical techs at St. Cloud Hospital are SCTCC graduates.
The St. Cloud Technical and Community College (SCTCC) Surgical Technology program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org).
The Surgical Technology Program prepares individuals to function as a part of the operating room team by handing instruments to the surgeon during various surgical procedures. Graduates will become an integral member of the health care team 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 possess expertise in the theory and application of sterile and aseptic technique with awareness of individual uniqueness of the patient.
