What our Graduates Say:

"Being in a clinical setting as a student helped me transition into an actual hospital without being as nervous or anxious, there was more of a fluidity to it. I was able to learn hands-on about surgical procedures and sterilization techniques. There’s a lot to be offered as a surgical technologist and I look forward to learning more and climbing up the ladder."



"My experience at Swedish was one of a kind. There were many ups and downs but thanks to the help of our amazing director and professors like Ms. Sebastian I was able to excel."
