A surgical technologist, also called a scrub, scrub tech, surgical technician or operating room technician, is an allied health professional working as a part of the team delivering surgical care. Surgical technologists are members of the surgical team. The members of the surgical team are the surgeon, surgeon's assistant, circulator nurse and anesthesia provider. They possess knowledge and skills in sterile and aseptic techniques. There are few mandatory professional requirements for surgical technologists, and the scope of practice varies widely across countries and jurisdictions. Surgical technologists attend junior colleges and technical schools, and many are trained in military schools. In the military they perform the duties of both the circulator and the scrub. The goal is for surgical technologists to be able to anticipate the next move the surgeon is going to make in order to make the procedure as smooth and efficient as possible. They do this by having the knowledge of hundreds of surgical procedures and the steps the surgeon needs to take in order to complete the procedure including the very wide range of surgical instruments they may need. Specialties can include but are not limited to the following - GU / ObGyn, urology, ENT, plastics, general, orthopedics, neurology, and cardiovascular. They only work in surgery or peri-operative areas and are highly specialized.
In the United States, surgical technologists are certified and work under the supervision of a surgeon, registered nurse (RN), surgeons assistant or other surgical personnel (such as a more senior Technologists), to help ensure that the operating room O.R. environment is safe, that equipment functions properly, and that the operative procedure is conducted under conditions that maximize patient safety.
