The purpose of this program is to educate students in the specialty of endoscopy and promote knowledge based critical thinking in the safe practice of flexible and rigid endoscopy.
An endoscopy technician is a medical assistant who helps endoscopy nurses and physicians in the gastroenterology (GI) specialty. They deal with patients who have stomach or intestine problems, or those who are undergoing treatment for serious illnesses like colorectal cancer. They usually work in hospitals, but they can find positions at smaller clinics or physician offices.
Upon completion of all core graduation requirements, graduates of this program will receive a Certificate as an Endoscopic Technician. Students may choose to complete the requirements for certification as an associate with the Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates, Inc. (SGNA).
