Our Surgical Technology cohort selective admissions will not be taking applications this Summer, 2023 for a Fall, 2023 cohort. (This is also true for our Central Sterile Supply Processing Certificate.) We hope to accept applications Summer 2024 for a Fall 2024 cohort. We encourage you to speak with your advisor regarding other possible allied health programs. You can also check with some of our sister technical colleges regarding their offering of a Surgical Technology program. Please continue to monitor our website for any future changes regarding the program.
