Career & Job Outlook 

According to the US Dept. of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics – the employment of surgical technologists is expected to grow 25 percent between 2008 and 2018, much faster than the average for all occupations, as the volume of surgeries increases.

The number of surgical procedures is expected to rise as the population grows and ages. Older people, including the baby boom generation, who generally require more surgical procedures, will account for a larger portion of the general population.

Hospitals will continue to be the primary employer of surgical technologists, although much faster employment growth is expected in offices of physicians and in outpatient care centers, including ambulatory surgical centers.

Job opportunities will be best for technologists who are certified.

Please view the US Dept. of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics for more information about the profession of Surgical Technology.
