Anesthesiology Technologists play a vital role in healthcare by providing support to Anesthesiologists by ordering, preparing, and setting up equipment for procedures. Anesthesiology Technologists calibrate and perform preventative maintenance on anesthesia machines and equipment.
Throughout the program, students are provided with hands-on experience in cooperation with various hospitals, under the direction of the Program Director, program faculty, teaching clinician and clinical preceptors. Graduates of the program are eligible to sit for the American Society of Anesthesia Technologists and Technicians (ASATT) and become certified Anesthesia Technologist (Cer.A.T.T.).
The curriculum includes selected science courses, which provide the basis for in-depth consideration of both theory and clinical application of principles utilized in Anesthesia Technology. Basic courses in the theoretical aspects of Anesthesia Technology encompass lecture, clinical, and on-line instruction.
The Collaborative Anesthesia Technology Consortium program model allows for both apprentices and traditional college students to attain an Associate of Applied Arts and Sciences degree in Anesthesiology Technology and take the National board exam. Students will take their didactic courses online as a cohort, through both synchronous and asynchronous instruction models. Lab and Clinical education will be dependent on student location.
The program is designed to meet the needs of employers. The program is five semesters long beginning in the Fall semester. There are 8 general education courses to ensure students are prepared for the rigorous Anesthesia Tech courses. In addition to the general education courses there are 9 anesthesia tech program courses.
