Surgical Tech Schools, Training and Scholarships

Surgical Tech Schools, Training and Imagine America Scholarships

Imagine America works with career colleges and surgical tech schools across the United States to help students become surgical technologists. The field of health care itself is expected to grow at an impressive 19 percent rate between 2014 and 2024. The need for surgical technologists is predicted to grow by a rate of 15 percent, which is still more than twice the national average for other fields. Many students pursue this type of training because it pays well (the average salary in 2016 was $45,160 per year). In addition, many surgical technologist programs can be completed in about 12 months or so, which is a benefit if you aren’t interested in pursuing a four-year program.

What’s it like working as a surgical technologist?

Surgical techs help set up operating rooms where patients are about to undergo a procedure. They’ll get the instruments and equipment ready for the physicians. And they’ll usually assist during procedures and afterward as well. Sometimes, heavy lifting can be required, depending on the medical supplies used.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) says that 70 percent of surgical techs worked in hospitals. But your city may have a mix of outpatient and hospital environments where you can apply to work. That’s why it’s important to meet with your school adviser — no matter where you enroll — to discuss which local employers they work with to help graduates get jobs.
