Online Surgical Assisting Program

Are You In Love With Surgery?

Typically, the first assistant is a second surgeon. More recently, two types of non-MD first assistant programs have emerged. The first being traditional, an entry-level Surgical Assistant training program aimed at beginners. Graduates may gain expertise with on-the-job experiences later in their careers. The second non-MD first assistant program is the ACE program. This unique approach to hands-on training assures that beginners perform like experts. Every student will gain expertise because it’s included in the program. A graduate’s expert status is not left to chance or remarkable circumstances.

At the ACE Online Surgery School, we developed an online Surgical Assistant Program around the skills that a second surgeon brings to the table. This ensures you feel comfortable and confident with your first assisting skills in the Operating Room. Additionally, it ensures that you can contribute at a higher level to the procedures. As a Surgical Technologist or OR Nurse, you’re the individual whom surgeons rely on for assistance if they can’t have their partner or regular Surgical Assistant.

  • Do you ever feel conflicted?
  • Are you flattered surgeons trust you but wish you could resolve your scope of practice liability?
  • Do you wish you could get closer to the surgical action you love?
  • Do you want to more directly impact patient outcomes?
  • Are you seeking to elevate your status, receive respect and recognition on the surgical team, enjoy a partner-like relationship with the surgeon, or gain confidence and expertise with surgical skills?

If so, contact ACE Surgical Assisting today.
