The role of a Surgical Technologist is to prepare operating rooms, arrange equipment, prepare patients, and assist doctors during surgeries. They have the unique opportunity to interact with patients prior to (pre), during (intra), and after (post) surgical procedures. Before surgery, a tech will assemble the necessary surgical equipment and ensure that all devices are in working order. Techs prepare patients for surgery by positioning, draping, washing and disinfecting the incision site. During an operation, Surgical Technologists will pass the sterile instruments and supplies to surgeons. They maintain asepsis during surgery, anticipating the surgeon's needs while remaining attentive to all aspects of the surgical procedure to ensure a safe environment for the patient. They might hold retractors or set up robotic surgical equipment. After surgery, techs often dress the incision site, transport patients to their recovery rooms, and restock the operating room with supplies and equipment. The role of the Surgical Technologist is incredibly important because they ensure a sterile and organized environment.

My most memorable moments I have with MedCerts include the support I got from Student Services. They knew my personal situation and provided me with ideas and resources to manage my study time knowing that I am a mother with young children, a military spouse, and working odd jobs. Over all, the kindness, support and personable experience I had with the team was incredible.
