Surgical Technology Club Conference

Leadership.  Professionalism.  Networking.  Innovation. Team Building.  Diversity.

On belhalf of the Terre Haute Surgical Technology Club, we are seeking your support to send 16 students to the 51st Annual Association of Surgical Technologists Conference. This year’s conference is being held in Atlanta, Georgia, May 28-30.  Your contribution will provide an opportunity for the students to attend AST's annual conference where they will learn from leading experts and forge new relationships within their professional networks. 

They will attend a one-day workshop which will prepare them for employment in their chosen fields, as well as provide "how-to" lessons on professionalism, leadership development, and building networking skills. Students will also participate in the AST Scrub Bowl. During this activity, schools participate in a competition which requires them to test their knowledge and prepare for their certification exam. The final two conference days will be spent in seminars learning about the latest technology and advancements in the surgical field. 

Your contribution goes directly to the students’ travel expenses; providing them a bridge to engagement with peers in their professional community. Find out more about the Surgical Technology Program at Ivy Tech Terre Haute by visiting https://www.ivytech.edu/surgical-technology
