  • Instill in you the concept of personal responsibility and accountability for your actions in the operating room while functioning as a part of the healthcare team (Affective)
  • Instruct you and refine your practice in the necessary manipulative skills that will enable you to function as Surgical Technologists (Psychomotor)
  • Provide you with a foundation of basic science and various subject matters unique to the operating room to allow you to utilize critical thinking skills in variable circumstances (Cognitive)
