Sterile Processing is the management of surgical instrumentation, supplies, and equipment needed for day to day use in the operating room. Students will apply theories and practices of central service departments contained in hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, or clinics. Coursework will provide fundamentals of central processing and supply and distribution. Students will also receive instruction and practice in aseptic technique. Upon successful completion of this program, the student will be eligible to sit in for the “International Association of Healthcare Central Service Material Management National Certifying Examination”.
Students can join the Sterile Processing program by registering for required sterile processing courses AND attending a mandatory orientation which takes place prior to the start of the semester.
