The complexity, pace, and expectations of the modern operating room demand exposure to Surgical Technology training that is very near a “real-life scenario.” Patients rely on skilled surgeons and anesthesiologists, superb technology, specialized nurses, and surgical technologists whose skills support those of their medical partners in the OR.
Mount Aloysius College educates Surgical Technologists using realistic operating room simulators located on campus. Surgical Technology students become familiar with operating room procedures and expectations well before joining other professionals performing surgical cases in actual clinical settings.
In the second year of study, Mount Aloysius students are introduced to clinical settings where they will assist surgeons in actual procedures. The laboratory component of training also occurs in the second year.
