Surgical rotation is a requirement for graduation from Kona Community Hospital Surgical Technology Program. The first part of the program is skills development in classroom and lab. After passing classroom/laboratory practical exam each student will be placed in a clinical rotation. This will involve pulling surgical cases, scrubbing, and gowning, gloving, setting up the operating room, sterile environment and scrubbing into surgical cases. The clinical student will be involved in surgical cases with the assistance of a preceptor. All students will be involved in patient care; preoperatively, intraoperatively, postoperatively.
Students will be rotating through several clinical sites. Other sites may be added in the future.
