Surgical Technologists


The field of surgical technology is projected to experience rapid job growth through 2029, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Population growth, increasing life spans, and improvement in medical and surgical procedures have all contributed to a growing demand for surgical services and hence for surgical technologists. The coronavirus pandemic has introduced new challenges to the medical field, with stricter protocols and safety measures to protect medical staff, patients, and the general public. As more people undergo surgery, there will continue to be a need for surgical technologists. Also, as surgical methods become increasingly complex, more surgical technologists will likely be needed. Surgical technologists who are certified will have the best employment opportunities.
