PSC professors have many years of professional experience, combined with the dedication to train the next generation of surgical technologists. In 2001 the program was approved by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Programs in nearly record time, an indication of the quality of the curriculum and faculty.
Our society has an ever-growing need for quality health care. In particular, the staffing of operating rooms has evolved into teams of professionals including physicians, nurses, surgical technologists, and others. Surgical technologists assist in invasive surgical procedures and facilitating safe and effective patient care. They shoulder major responsibility in ensuring that operating rooms are safe and that equipment functions properly.
In response to the needs of local hospitals, PSC launched its Surgical Technology program in 2000, one of only five such programs in the Chicago area.
