Surgical Technologist

Program Requirements

The Surgical Technologist program is a cohort that begins every fall term.  Once admitted, the program will take six terms to complete. In order to apply, applicants must submit all noted documentation in the Program Bulletin. All qualified candidates will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to residents of Oregon for the first week that applications are open.

Application to this program is an online, two-step process. The first application step you complete reserves your spot in line for the program, while the second step (submission of supplemental materials) completes your application.

See the program bulletin.
