Surgical Tech students attend NYAST Conference and Scrub Bowl
The MCC Surgical Technology Program, with the help of the Club for Surgical Technologists and the MCC Student Government, sent three (3) second-year students and seven (7) first-year students to the 2019 New York Association of Surgical Technologists Spring Conference in Buffalo. This is a semi-annual event that brings together Surgical Tech students, Certified Surgical Technologists, and program instructors for educational presentations, a student scrub bowl and round table discussions. Topics included New Cataract Surgery Innovations, Total Hip Arthroplasty, OB/GYN Advanced Instrumentation and Robotic Orthopedic surgeries. We all learned new things and met new people from all over the state who work in the surgical field. The Scrub Bowl team included Delia Hanley, Laura Nashburn, Crystal Thousand (who are all graduating this year) and a first-year student, Mario DiRoma. The competition was fun!
