Surgical Technologist Duties
Surgical technologists are an extremely important part of the surgical preparatory process. As a surgical technologist, your primary duties will include preparing the operating room, arranging equipment in order to best assist the surgeons, and understand how to operate the proper technology tools before, during and after the surgical procedure. Surgical technologists are meant to assist surgeons and other medical professionals in operating rooms and other areas of the hospital. By preparing patients, equipment and rooms for surgery, you are providing a major help to both the patients and the medical personnel involved.
Surgical Technologist Education Requirements
In order to become a surgical technologist, you must earn a certificate or an associate’s degree in surgical technology. A proper surgical technologist must also obtain a voluntary certification through the National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting, as well as a certification from the National Center for Competency Testing. By passing these requirements and obtaining the proper certifications, you can be eligible to be placed in the surgical technologist job market. Due to the level of precision and understanding required of the technology and the operating room’s preparatory procedures, it is necessary for a surgical technician to complete a post-secondary certificate or degree program to become properly certified.
