Ulster BOCES Accepting Applications for Surgical Technologist Classes

Enrollment is now open for Ulster BOCES Adult Career Education Center’s Surgical Technologist program, which begins in September. The program is an accredited, full-time course that will fulfill required classroom and clinical hours and prepare students to sit for their National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting Certification Exams. Onsite, hands-on, real-life medical skills are obtained through clinical instruction in operating rooms at local healthcare facilities. Students will learn from an experienced faculty and progress through several levels of study.

A Surgical Technologist is an allied health professional that works closely with surgeons, anesthesiologists, registered nurses, and other surgical personnel, delivering patient care during all aspects of a surgical procedure. To become a surgical technologist, a student will need a post-secondary non-degree award or an associate’s degree. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, most surgical technologists work in hospitals earning approximately $45,000 per year. The Bureau projects that employment of surgical technologists will grow 12% between 2016-2026.  

Seating is limited for this popular program, so don’t delay! To begin the enrollment process, call 845.331.5050 to request an application.
