In 1984, the Association of Surgical Technologists Board of Directors dedicated the third week in September to recognizing the critical job surgical technologists perform every day. COTC celebrates our surgical technology students, faculty and alumni for all their hard work in the field, efforts to ensure patient safety, and their accomplishments in advancing the profession.
