Enhancing the profession to ensure quality patient care.
AST Headquarters will be closed Monday, February 18, in observance of President's Day. We will reopen at 8 am MT Tuesday, February 19.
In 2005, the AST Board of Directors established the first student-focused event at the AST national conference, where more than 300 students came to learn, network and demonstrate their eagerness to join the surgical technology arena during the AST Student Day. Each year after, hundreds of students have gathered to attend the since-renamed ASTSA Forum. Each year students elect their peers to serve as ASTSA student representatives and help drive the success of the ASTSA and foster new engagement into the profession.
The ASTSA student representatives were elected by their peers at the ASTSA Forum in Orlando in June.
