Surgical Technology

This is a career and technical education program. Upon successful completion of all program requirements an Associate of Applied Science degree in Surgical Technology is awarded by Richland Community College. Eligible students sit for the National Certification Examination to become Certified Surgical Technologists (CST). Some courses may not transfer to four-year institutions.

The Surgical Technology Program is a selective admission program, and minimum criteria must be met in order to apply. Admission to the program is by application. Admission to Richland Community College does not guarantee acceptance to the program. The program begins each fall semester, and takes five semesters to complete.

Richland’s Surgical Technology Degree program is a Regional Partnership with Heartland Community College and Lake Land College. In addition to serving Richland, the program also serves these colleges by reserving a limited number of seats for qualified students seeking admission. Students residing outside of the Richland or the Regional Partnership districts will be considered for admission when space is available.
