  1. New here, entering the Surgical Tech field. On my 3rd week of Clinical for the summer.

  2. Third week of my summer clinical, all is going well. So far I am learning a lot and my preceptors are exceptional at helping me to learn the ways of the OR and fine tuning my abilities to do the job well.

  3. I’m a Surgical tech student and I’m looking forward to learning more about Connecticut state assembly of surgical technologists

    • Natalia, we are so pleased you have decided to join us and that you like your class. What year are you in?

  6. Why do those who are in the field give such a hard time to those who are learning? Don’t they remember they were once in the learning stage too.

    • Hi Georgia, thank you for your comment! In some cases individuals may behave in certain way without realizing it. Please do not get discouraged and let one bad incident or experience change your perception of the professionals in the Surgical Technology field. Keep working hard and learning the techniques and soon enough you will be mentoring others.

  7. Hi all – looking for surgical tech programs and have had no luck within CT.. does anyone know why all the programs were suspended? Anywhere else I should look?
