Enhancing the profession to ensure quality patient care.
AST headquarters will be closed Monday, July 4, 2022. We hope you all have a safe Fourth of July!
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.
AST is excited to bring back the National Student Scrub Bowl to our 2022 conference line-up! Surg tech classes should start planning now. Early registration is recommended. Visit AST Scrub Bowl Format for rules and 2022 Scrub Bowl Eligibility for more details.
