SURG 1602 Clinical

(0-0-20) 3 Credits UN
This is a course designed to provide the student with a solid introduction to the operating room and its routines. This course functions to expand knowledge gained in the Introduction to Surgical Technology Course and support the knowledge being gained in Surgical Technology Roles Courses. By working in the clinical setting of the surgical suite, the student will become familiar with the health care facility and its ancillary departments. While in Central Sterile Supply Processing the student will become familiar with instrument handling as well as handling of supplies. Also included in this course are tasks of surgery personnel such as the orderly/aide/attendant, anesthesia, circulator, and post-anesthesia care unit as well as the surgical technologist. The student also participates in advanced observation and performances of surgical technology skills while “scrubbed-in” on procedures under faculty supervision in the clinical setting. The student will begin the task of performing the 120 cases required to complete the entire Surgical Technology Program once the Clinical Skills Practicum for SURG 1410  and SURG 1411  are passed.
