Program Goals

The goal of the Harper College Surgical Technology program is to prepare competent entry-level surgical technologists, employing highly trained faculty, and state-of-the-art classrooms, equipment, and learning laboratories. Surgical Technology students will achieve program expectations through educational activities in the cognitive, psychomotor and affective learning domains. The Surgical Technology program at Harper College will produce graduates who meet the needs of employers and physicians, while ensuring safety of the public through competent practice. Graduates will assume employment as skilled and conscientious health professionals providing quality patient care in conjunction with other members of the health care team.
