If they can’t find what they need users can submit their own questions, so the knowledge base grows as new questions are answered.

Surgical Technology Program

Surgical Technology


Surgical Technology is an Allied Health profession whose primary concern is the care of
surgical patients in the operating room. The Surgical Technologist helps prepare the
operating room with necessary instruments and supplies while testing equipment. The
primary role is to maintain the sterile field and aid the surgeon by passing sterile
supplies or directly assisting with the surgery.
The Surgical Technologist is a direct patient care provider and is therefore in contact
with and works in conjunction with the patient, his/her relatives, physicians, nurses and
other health care professionals.
The purpose of the Lincoln University Surgical Technology Program is to prepare students
who have demonstrated the necessary desire, aptitude, strength of character and maturity
to pass the National Certification Exam for Surgical Technology and to be selected for and
to hold a Surgical Technologist position. The purpose however does not end there. The
student will be taught the Surgical Technology Code of Ethics, the Patient Bill of Rights, the
principles of quality assurance and the elements of safety and infection control associated
with all skills presented.
