A curriculum map is a graphical illustration of the relationship between a program’s courses and the program’s student learning outcomes. Curriculum maps at Aims Community College identify the program’s mission statement (red), program-learning goals (dark gray), and expected program student learning outcomes (light gray). In addition, Aims’ curriculum maps indicate where learning outcomes are introduced, reinforced, and mastered. 


Surgical technologists work with the surgeon, nurse and other technicians to ensure the operating room is safe, equipment is functioning properly, and may assist with preparing sterile dressings and closing incisions.

The Aims Surgical Technology program will prepare you to work in an operating room setting that requires multitasking abilities.

The Surg Tech Program is accredited by CAAHEP - Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education.
