Surgical Technology Program Honors Profession
Ogeechee Technical College

The Surgical Technology Program at Ogeechee Technical College recently celebrated National Surgical Technologists Week. Founded to raise awareness of the role of the surgical technologist/certified surgical technologist, and the intense training it takes to enter the field, programs across the country participate in events during this week held in September.

The week’s activities at Ogeechee Tech included a catered lunch on Tuesday for winning a contest sponsored by the Georgia State Assembly Association of Surgical Technologists (GASA). This was awarded to the OTC program for going above and beyond to support the profession. The students created fun games and held a program spotlight in the Joseph E. Kennedy Lobby on Wednesday. The GASA also sent of box of goodies to the students that included a backpack with notepads, a pen, and lanyard.  OTC’s Surgical Technology instructors are Terri Crosson and Brittany Poole.  Crosson, said, “It is always nice to see the class come together and bond during this week over good food and festivities. Mrs. Poole and I are thankful to have the chance to instruct such a fine group of students.”
