Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) June 07, 2011
Anthem College—Orlando recently launched a new Surgical Technologist Associate in Science program.
The new program, says Campus President David Champlin, will help fill an expected demand for surgical technologists in the Orlando region. “More than 20 new operating rooms will come online in 2012,” Champlin says, citing current construction of the Nemours Children’s Hospital and the Orlando VA Medical Center at Medical City at Lake Nona.
Medical City already houses two other hospitals: Orlando Health and Florida Hospital. Other Orlando institutions include Arnold Palmer Medical Center, the nation’s largest hospital facility dedicated to serving the medical needs of women and children.
Anthem’s Surgical Technologist students will train in surgical labs designed to look like actual surgical theaters, where they will learn surgical procedures and techniques, instrumentation, infection control and patient positioning. Their coursework will cover human body systems, pharmacology, anesthesiology and communication skills.
After completing their coursework, students will be placed in externships where they will work with surgical teams. Upon graduating with the Associate in Science degree, they will be ready to compete for entry-level positions to assist surgical teams before, during, and after surgical procedures as surgical technologists, laboratory and delivery technicians, sterile processing technicians, or private surgical scrubs.
In addition, “each graduate enters the market with our Graduate Quality Warranty,” Champlin says. “This guarantees their skills and capabilities to employers. If an employer is dissatisfied for any reason, we will provide re-training, at no cost to anyone.”
“We are that confident in our graduates,” Champlin adds.
