It is a combination of classroom studies and classroom lab practice experiences in the perioperative arena (operating room, pre- and post anesthesia care and labor and delivery) which prepares students to assist members of the surgical team (surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses and surgical technologists) with client care and related services. Particular attention is placed upon the skills involved in scrubbing and circulating a wide variety of surgical procedures, and in the preparation and maintenance of sterilized and unsterilized supplies.
