Surgical Technologists

The field of surgical technology is projected to experience rapid job growth through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Population growth, increasing life spans, and improvement in medical and surgical procedures have all contributed to a growing demand for surgical services and hence for surgical technologists. As long as the rate at which people undergo surgery continues to increase, there will continue to be a need for this profession. Also, as surgical methods become increasingly complex, more surgical technologists will likely be needed.┬áSurgical technologists who are certified will have the best employment opportunities.
