AST Headquarters will be closed Monday, May 27 in observance of Memorial Day. We will also have limited staff May 28-31 as we host AST's Surgical Technology Conference in Washington, DC. Normal operations will resume June 3. We appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter. 

RECERTIFICATION
  • AST Guidelines for Public Comment

    The Association of Surgical Technologists recognized the need for CSTs and CSFAs to have a comprehensive publication focused on evidence-based Guidelines for Best Practices. The Guidelines were researched and developed, in order to aid in legislative efforts for state assemblies and to provide readily available answers to questions asked by operating room supervisors.
