Surgical Technology gradsThe School of Surgical Technology at BOCES received a merit award from the National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting because 94% of the adult students in the two most recent Surgical Technology classes passed the Certified Surgical Technologist exam.

The CST is widely recognized in the health care community as the foremost credential for surgical technologists in the nation and is required for employment in many health care organizations. Graduates, including those shown at left, with this national certification have demonstrated an understanding of the basic competencies for safe patient care in the operating room.
