SUR 270: Biomedical Science and Minimally Invasive Surgery
In this course, students are introduced to the areas of information technology, electricity, laser and robotics as they apply to the surgical technologist role in minimally invasive surgery. As surgical equipment becomes more technical, understanding the fundamental principles of these technologies is essential to the entry-level surgical technologist. Students will practice and be evaluated on their surgical technologist support skills in robotics and minimally invasive surgery.

What Students Say About Online Classes
“I was very reluctant to take online classes, but because of my various roles as a wife, mother, full-time employee, and student my time was limited…. Online classes have helped with managing my time in these various roles, and have been a true blessing to both my family and my learning experience at WCC.”—F. Robertson
