College of DuPage Offers New Operating Room Patient Care Technician Certificate
Jul 11, 2017 4:31 PM - The new Operating Room Patient Care Technician Certificate program at College of DuPage will prepare students for entry-level positions in perioperative service careers. "ORPCTs provide support services to assist surgical patients," said Kathy Cabai, professor and coordinator of the Surgical Technology program. "For example, facilities need trained ORPCTs to expedite room turnover from one procedure to the next. The turnover rate can be 45 minutes, but with a trained ORPCT, it can be 15 to 20 minutes."
