According to the AST, Surgical Technologists are essential – not only in the operating room – but to your kids and families, to local nonprofits, churches and charities, to local businesses, to your neighborhoods, causes and communities, to friends and colleagues, to the profession and to the public.

MCC offers a 2-year Associate of Applied Science in Surgical Technology, which is the only CAAHEP Accredited AAS in Surgical Technology program in the city of Chicago.

Some of the skills surgical tech students learn are:

  • Preparation of the operating room environment with instruments, equipment, and supplies
