The Surgical Technology program at Sanford-Brown is designed to provide students with the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills) and affective (behavior) learning domains necessary for employment as an entry-level surgical technologist.
The AST Core Curriculum 5th Edition was used as a guideline to facilitate the formation of the surgical technology program curriculum, which includes an on-campus lecture component, an on-campus laboratory component and an off-campus integrated clinical component.
The curriculum is designed to provide instruction in anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, surgical pharmacology and microbiology, surgical procedures, aseptic technique, surgical instrumentation, and medical legal components of the practice of surgical technology. Students are also taught necessary skill sets, such as critical thinking under pressure, case preparation and management and anticipation of patient needs and safety. The final externship portion of the curriculum is structured to include supervised experiences in the clinical environment that require competencies, logs, and evaluations completed by the student.
At the conclusion of the program, graduates who have diligently attended class and their externship, studied, and practiced their skills should have the skills to seek entry-level employment as surgical technologists.
