The Surgical Technology (SGT) AAS program is a two-year, 60-credit hour curriculum leading to an associate of applied science degree.

Graduates of this program are required to take the National Certification Surgical Technology exam.

The TVCC SGT program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) upon the recommendation of the Accreditation Review Committee on Education in Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (ARC/STSA).

There is a selection process for this program. It is the student’s responsibility to read the current brochure at www.tvcc.edu/health-science-center. Students may apply if they expect to complete the prerequisite courses or become TSI complete by the end of the fall semester.

The deadline for completing all pre-admission testing requirements and for submitting the online application is December 1. Applicants will have until January 31 to submit fall semester transcripts and TSI completion documentation.

NOTE: Criminal history MAY disqualify individuals from obtaining or maintaining surgical technologist’s certifications.

Surgical technology graduates become Certified Surgical Technologists (CST) by passing the National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (NBSTSA) certifying exam. At present, NBSTSA does not disqualify applicants with a criminal history from taking the certifying exam and becoming a CST. However, criminal history may disqualify individuals from obtaining employment as a surgical technologist.

 

*Although not designed to transfer, this AAS program leads to an online Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (BAAS) degree with participating universities. See an academic advisor for more information about the BAAS.
