Apply now for ACTC Surgical Technology Program


Sept. 4, 2013 — Oct. 1 is the application deadline for the Surgical Technology Program that begins next spring at Ashland Community and Technical College.

The three-semester diploma program at the College Drive Campus includes basic sciences, surgical decorum and protocol, and technical skills for assisting surgeons in the operating room.

Graduates work in health facilities throughout the region. “I regularly get calls from hospitals in the Tri-State seeking surgical technologists,” Cavins said. “Many of our students have job offers before they graduate, and quite a few of those jobs are at the hospitals that serve as our clinical sites.”

Surgical Technology is a selective admission programs, and prospective students need to complete a Surgical Technology application.

Applicants who are not current ACTC students also need to complete the ACTC application process.
