Surgical Technology at Greentree Health Science Academy

Student practicing sutures Surgical Technology students will study Allied Health, Anatomy and Physiology and Medical Terminology with a keen focus on Surgical Support. Surgical technicians are the first to enter operating rooms and are responsible for creating and maintaining the OR’s sterile environment. Operating rooms can be hectic and demanding, so you must be able to remain calm and think quickly while dealing with life-threatening emergencies. Surgical techs are a key member of the team and must anticipate the needs of the patient and the surgeon during surgery to ensure that each operation goes as smoothly as possible. After the operation, the surgical tech is responsible for accounting for all tools and instruments, suturing incisions and dressing wounds, and continue to maintain the sterile environment.
