Surgical technicians, also known as scrubs or scrub techs, are critical members of operating room teams. They help prepare the operation room for surgery, assist the surgeon in putting on his or her gown, pass instruments and anticipate the surgeon’s needs during an operation, and ensure that there are no breaks in sterile techniques throughout the entire process to ensure the patient does not acquire a surgical site infection.

Horry-Georgetown Technical College
ROI was very important to me. HGTC has provided me with a 2.5-year college degree for a very minimal investment. Job prospects in my industry are great, which puts me in a position to repay student loans quickly so I’m not still digging out from debt a decade down the road. I will be in a much better financial position without all the debt I would have incurred had I opted to go back to a four-year college.
