"I am honored to say I graduated from Swedish Institute not once, but twice. The first time was in the Massage Therapy Program and the second, Surgical Technologist. I felt more than prepared in the surgery room and very confident in what I have learned. Special thanks to Richard Gardner in Career Services who worked day and night to make sure I got a job. If I had to do it all over again, I would in a heartbeat."

"Being in the surgical tech program was a fun experience at Swedish Institute. I learned a lot in my clinical rotations, and clinical helped me tremendously with preparing for the "OR World." During my last term, Career Services helped me so much, especially with my resume. Richard was able to find me a job, and now I'm living my dream of working in the operating room!"
