Pearl River to offer virtual Surgical Technology Q&A

 Pearl River Community College’s Surgical Technology Program instructors will be providing important information to interested applicants through two upcoming virtual Q & A sessions. 

Sessions will be held over WebEx on Thursday, Sept. 24 and Thursday, Oct. 8 from 4 – 5 p.m. 

“We are really looking forward to meeting and talking with prospective students and anyone who just wants to learn more about what we do,” PRCC Instructor of Surgical Technology Lori Little said. “We love surgery and can’t wait to share more information about it.”

Instructors will be answering any questions from students and covering information about applications, deadlines, requirements, program information and the Surgical Technology field in general. 

The Surgical Technology Program located at PRCC’s Forrest County Center, is a comprehensive program of study where students receive an in-depth practical knowledge and essential clinical education related to the Operating Room. In addition to the hospital OR, Surgical Technologists may be employed in Labor & Delivery, Central Sterile Processing departments, Supply/Purchasing, Outpatient Clinic and Surgery facilities, sales representatives for medical product companies as well other career opportunities that may be available.

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that the Surgical Technology profession will grow faster than the average of all other occupations through the year 2020, and it is anticipated that the volume of surgery will increase exponentially.

Those interested in attending either virtual session should email for a WebEx invitation.
