Surgical Technician Jobs

Assist in surgical procedures. Surgical technicians—also called “operating room technicians” or “scrubs”—prepare and transport patients, set up equipment, pass instruments to surgeons and first assistants, and hold tissues/organs in place. They ensure that all equipment is functional and tools are sterile. The “surgical technician” job title may refer to professionals whose training occurs largely on the job, with little to no formal education in their field.

Because patients may be nervous during preparation and transport to the operating room, many surgical technicians rely regularly on their emotional intelligence and compassion. They also depend on their attention to detail and organizational prowess to ensure that instruments are always thoroughly disinfected and rooms are fully stocked for procedures.
