The Surgical Technology Diploma in Applied Science program is designed to prepare individuals for employment as surgical technologists. Surgical technologists are integral members of the surgical team who work closely with surgeons, anesthesiologists, registered nurses, and other surgical personnel in delivering patient care and assuming appropriate responsibilities before, during, and after surgery. The primary responsibility of the surgical technologist is to maintain the sterile field while ensuring that all other members of the surgical team adhere to aseptic technique.

The qualified candidate will have excellent eye-hand coordination, effective communication skills, an affinity for detail, and the ability to function well in stressful situations. Knowledge of human anatomy, surgical instrumentation, supplies and procedures allows the surgical technologist to function as an integral member of the surgical team. Program graduates will be eligible to take the National Certified Surgical Technologist examination (CST) and will be qualified for employment in many diverse areas of the health care system, such as the following: operating rooms, emergency rooms, labor and delivery, GI and cardiac catheterization labs, ambulatory surgery centers, sterile supply, cell saver technologist, private physician’s scrub surgical technologists, instrument sales representatives and veterinary assistants.

The Surgical Technology Diploma Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) 25400 U.S. Highway 19 North, Suite 158, Clearwater, FL 33763 (727-210-2350), upon the recommendation of the Accreditation Review Council on Education in Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (ARC/STSA).

Application for admission to the Surgical Technology program is based on a COMPETITIVE ADMISSION PROCESS; therefore, meeting the minimum admission criteria does not guarantee an applicant admission to the Surgical Technology program.

Program Mission Statement

To prepare competent entry-level individuals in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains for employment as surgical technologists and to be integral members of a surgical team, who work closely with surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, registered nurses, and other surgical personnel in delivering patient care and assuming appropriate responsibilities before, during, and after surgery.

Program Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the Surgical Technology Program, the graduate will be able to:

  1. Integrate the knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, and microbiology in the delivery of safe practice.
  2. Integrate principles of surgical asepsis as part of the preoperative experience.
  3. Implement safe practice techniques in regards to preoperative routines, patient transportation, positioning, and emergency procedures.
  4. Correlate the elements, action, and use of medications and anesthetic agents used during the preoperative experience.
  5. Demonstrate professional behaviors to include ethical, legal, moral, and medical values reflective of a competent entry-level Surgical Technologist.
  6. Exhibit effective communication skills necessary to work collaboratively as a member of the surgical team.
  7. Possess the knowledge and skills to successfully pass the NBSTSA National Certification Exam.
Admission Requirements

Application for admission to the Surgical Technology program is based on a COMPETITIVE ADMISSION PROCESS; therefore, meeting the minimum admission criteria does not guarantee an application admission to the Surgical Technology program.

Competitive Admission Process

The Surgical Technology program has a limited enrollment and students must apply for admission. An applicant may obtain an Admission Eligibility Verification and Application form from the Surgical Technology Program manager and/or Health Sciences Administrative Assistant in the Health Sciences Center. It is the applicant’s responsibility to complete the Admission Eligibility Verification and Application form correctly and submit the form to the Surgical Technology Program Manager by the deadline.

Application Deadline

Students are admitted to the Surgical Technology program annually in the fall semester. NOTE: If the deadline date falls on a weekend or holiday, the deadline date becomes the next business day.

All applicants must meet the general enrollment requirements of Central Carolina Technical College (see general College admissions requirements) as well as all admission requirements for Health Sciences students listed at the beginning of the Health Sciences program section of the catalog.

Must be satisfied PRIOR to the Surgical Technology program application admission process:

Admission into the Surgical Technology program is competitive and based on a selective point system process. The point system process is an objective means for evaluating applicants. Applicants will be numerically ranked according to the following criteria.

Credit awarded as “E” to a student through advanced standing (Advanced Placement Examinations, College Level Examination Program, Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support, International Baccalaureate Examination, and Proficiency Tests) will NOT be calculated in the admission program GPA.

The program curriculum courses (general education courses) required in the Surgical Technology program curriculum are:

*BIO 210/BIO 211 may be used to replace BIO 112
**BIO 225 may be used to replace BIO 115

General education courses in the Surgical Technology curriculum may be retaken one time only.

Initial Core Courses

Twenty percent (20%) of an applicant’s total points will come from the required initial core courses; AHS 102 (Medical Terminology) *BIO 112 (Basic Anatomy and Physiology), ENG 101 (English Composition I), and MAT 155 (Contemporary Mathematics). Points will be awarded based on grades achieved in AHS 102, BIO 112, ENG 101, and MAT 155.

*Completion of BIO 210 and BIO 211 with a grade of “C” or better on each may be substituted for BIO 112. However, the grade received in BIO 210 will be used to award the points for the initial core course.

Credit awarded as “E” to a student through advanced standing (Advanced Placement Examinations, College Level Examination Program, Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support, International Baccalaureate Examination, and Proficiency Tests) will be treated as a grade of “C”.

Service Area and Collegiate Credential

Ten percent (10%) of the applicant’s total points will come from the following: 1) Service Area and 2) Collegiate Credential

Service Area – a resident of Clarendon, Kershaw, Lee, and Sumter counties in South Carolina will be awarded points in the competitive admission process. The Central Carolina Technical College Admissions and Counseling Services Office will be responsible for making all residency determinations. It is the applicant’s responsibility to submit proper documentation of residency.

Collegiate Credential (credit only) – an applicant with a regionally accredited post-secondary degree, diploma, or certificate will be awarded points in the competitive admission process. Only post- secondary degrees, diplomas, or certificates accepted by the College Registrar prior to the application deadline will be considered. Points will be awarded based on the highest degree earned. Two or more degrees will not be counted. For example, if an applicant has completed a Baccalaureate Degree as well as an Associate Degree, the applicant will only receive points for the Baccalaureate Degree or if an applicant has two Baccalaureate Degrees, the applicant will only receive points for one of the two Baccalaureate Degrees.

Additional Points

Additional points may be added to an applicant’s total points if the applicant completes BIO 115 (Basic Microbiology), PSY 201 (General Psychology) or has taken the second of the Anatomy and Physiology course series (BIO 211) and achieved a grade of “C” or higher prior to submitting their admission application. Points will be awarded based on the grades achieved in BIO 115 or BIO 225, BIO 211 and/or PSY 201. Up to ten additional points may be awarded.

Applicants to the Surgical Technology program will be ranked based upon points awarded, and the applicants with the highest number of points will be selected to fill the available seats in the Surgical Technology program. If two or more applicants have the identical point count total, the highest TEAS Adjusted Individual Total Score will be the deciding factor.

Progression Standards – After Program Entry

Additional Course Notes

*BIO 210 and BIO 211 may take the place of BIO 112.
