NMC Earns Surgical Technology Accreditation

By Beth Milligan | Nov. 30, 2017

Northwestern Michigan College's (NMC's) surgical technology program has been awarded initial accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP).

The accreditation is the result of an on-site peer review conducted in February by the Accreditation Review Council on Education in Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (ARC/STSA) and CAAHEP’s board of directors. The initial accreditation status will expire on November 30, 2022.

Surgical technology is one of NMC's newest programs, with surgical technologists serving as part of the team of medical practitioners providing surgical care to patients. Such technologists work under the supervision of a surgeon to facilitate the safe and effective conduct of surgical procedures, ensuring that the operating room environment is safe, that equipment functions properly, and that the operative procedure is conducted under conditions that maximize patient safety. The degree is offered in partnership with Munson Medical Center.
