This program prepares students to function as integral members of anesthesia teams in surgical settings. Students will be educated in the theoretical concepts and clinical applications of the profession in the on-campus surgical suite, which provides a non-intimidating environment to learn professional skills, prior to having actual patient contact. These skills include assisting with intubations, assembling monitoring lines, patient transport, interpreting physiological information, patient preparation, and patient positioning. Additionally, students will be assigned to various hospitals as part of their clinical phase of education. Here skills will be perfected in an actual OR setting under the supervision of a currently employed anesthesia technologist.
