Surgical Technology Student Work Policy
The Surgical Technology Program is designed to provide student participation in the classroom, in the laboratory and in clinical settings. All student activities associated with the curriculum, especially while students are completing clinical rotations in area hospitals and clinics, will be educational in nature.
As stated in the program’s affiliation agreement and in the program’s student handbook, students will not receive any monetary remuneration from clinical sites during their clinical rotations and will not be substituted for paid personnel to work in the capacity of a surgical technologist during their clinical rotations.
The clinical affiliation agreement for the Surgical Technology Program also identifies the specific responsibilities of the college, the clinical affiliate and the surgical technology student.
