Surgical Technology – Frequently Asked Questions

Can I work while I’m in the program?

Students are strongly discouraged from working full-time. Students must be able to maintain flexible hours.  Clinical experiences consist of two or three eight to ten hour days per week.

Is there an evening program track?

Currently there is only a day program.

What days of the week are classes?

Schedules vary with each semester, often requiring attendance five days per week.

Is there a waiting list for entrance into the program?

Enrollment is limited due to clinical site placement. Cohorts are only admitted one time per year, starting in the fall term. Therefore, there may be a wait period before students can register for the surgical technology classes.  While waiting, students may take the non-technical classes listed in the curriculum.
