Who are we?
Since 1969 the Association of Surgical Technologists has sought to bring together surgical technologists and other healthcare professionals and organizations to promote quality patient care by developing educational programs, promoting professional standards and credentials, providing a forum for the exchange of ideas, monitoring the changing healthcare environment, and fostering other opportunities for the personal and professional growth of all surgical technologists and surgical assistants.
Our mission is to provide surgical technologists the opportunity to grow through continuing education, legislation, and marketing. By networking with other health care professionals, we will ultimately contribute to the care of our surgical patients.
The goal of the Montana State Assembly of Surgical Technologists is to promote our profession and offer educational opportunities throughout the state of Montana for both new and experienced Surgical Technologists and other surgical personnel. We support and encourage certification. Every surgical patient deserves a Certified Surgical Technologist and/or a Certified First Assistant.
