Surgical Technologist Job Outlook


Employment of surgical technologists is projected to grow 15% from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the forecasted 7% average growth for all occupations

Advances in medical technology have made surgery safer, and more operations are being done to treat a variety of illnesses and injuries. The aging of the large number of baby boomers also is expected to increase the need for surgical technologists because older people usually require more operations, including joint replacements and heart-related procedures.




Hospitals will continue to be the primary employer of surgical technologists, reducing costs by employing technologists, instead of higher paid registered nurses, in operating rooms

Job opportunities should be best for surgical technologists who have completed an accredited education program and who maintain their professional certification
