Surgical technologists are allied health professionals who are an integral part of the team of medical practitioners providing surgical care to patients. Surgical technologists work under the supervision of surgeons to facilitate the safe and effective conduct of surgical procedures.

The field is considered among the fastest-growing in the United States. The Bureau of Labor and Statistics reports that employment growth for “surgical technologists is projected to grow 9 percent from 2018 to 2028, faster than the average for all occupations.” For further information, contact Stefanie Vaughn at
