A career in one of the most important aspects of medical care.

Surgeons can’t do it alone. Even their steady hands require the support of a dedicated team of trained operating room staff. In this unique profession, the surgical technologist will assist by anticipating each step of the procedure to ensure the surgeons hands stay occupied with the correct sterile instrumentation and supply.

In our Surgical Technology program, you’ll study with surgical professionals to learn how to deliver patient safety by properly applying sterile technique and aseptic principles as well as best practices in providing support to surgeons no matter what procedure they’re performing. Carefully designed curriculum provides classroom theory and hands-on experience to prepare you for a rewarding career as a surgical technologist.

After graduation all you have to do is enter the field and get to work.

I chose Baker because they had such a detailed laid out plan for me. It got me working as a nurse and their goal is see everyone off and working. Baker faculty are very prepared professionals. I felt like they set me up for success.
