Overview

The Lansing Community College Surgical Technology Program is designed to cover both the academic and clinical skills necessary to perform as a surgical technologist. The program begins fall semester of each year. Certain prerequisite courses must be completed prior to admission to the professional portion, the 2nd year, of this program.

Students who plan to complete this associate degree program follow the Phase I Admission Requirements and Phase II guidelines for Admission Ranking.

Surgical technologists who take and pass the certifying examination offered by the NBSTSA (National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting) are certified and authorized to use the initials CST to designate their status as a Certified Surgical Technologist. Certification can be a means of upward mobility, a condition of employment, a route to higher salary, or a source of national recognition.
