Surgical Technician Curriculum.
EASTCONN Regional Educational Services Center, North Windham, CT.
This curriculum guide, developed for 10-month postsecondary programs in Connecticut, outlines a program for training surgical technicians. The program is divided into two components, didactic and clinical. Following a list of six general objectives of the program, the guide provides a curriculum outline by major areas with the number of hours needed for each area. Major areas covered in the curriculum are the following: orientation to the operating room; safe patient care; intraoperative techniques; supplies and equipment; basic sciences; and supervised experience in surgical technology and surgical procedures. The guide then lists the competencies that students are expected to develop in each of these areas of the program and outlines the curriculum for the 10 months. A bibliography lists texts and references, audiovisuals, supplies and equipment, publications and periodicals, anatomical models, and charts, by subject area. Addresses for publishers of audiovisual materials are given. (KC)
