One area in which new surgical technology program directors can enhance their programs is through grants. At Madisonville Community College, I have been very fortunate to work with David Schuermer and Craig Dixon, two grant specialists who frequently lend their expertise and insight when it comes to all things grants. Through their efforts, we have been able to obtain items for the surgical technology program that have enhanced the students’ learning experience. Just a few of those items include a surgical table, surgical instruments and a LAPSIM training system.

In early February, 100 program directors, faculty and administrative professionals gathered in San Antonio for ARC/STSA’s Accreditation Fundamentals for Educators (AFE) Workshop. With a record-high attendance, there was ample opportunity for attendees to learn from each other, exchange ideas and network.
