Surgical Technology Program

Our training program prepares you for a rewarding career as a surgical technologist.

The NYU Langone Health Surgical Technology Program prepares qualified students to be surgical technologists. A surgical technologist is an integral member of the surgical team who works closely with the surgeon, anesthesiologist, and registered nurse, delivering direct patient care before, during, and after surgery.

The certified surgical technologist can seek employment in the operating room, delivery room, cardiac catheterization lab, or surgery center; in central service; or as a private scrub for a surgeon.

Surgical Technology Program Training Experience

Our one-year Surgical Technology Program is divided into two six-month semesters, with classes starting in September and March.

The first semester is devoted to study in aseptic technique fundamentals of operating room technology and basic surgical procedures, while the second semester is spent in the clinical area.

Formal classes are held at 462 First Avenue, room CD1-44, in Manhattan. The clinical portion of the program takes place at locations throughout NYU Langone.

The Accreditation Review Council on Education in Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (ARC/STSA) Outcomes Assessment Examination pass rate for our program in 2019 was 92 percent.
