School of Sterile Processing
The Sterile Processing Technician program at Allied Institute of Professional Studies (AlliedIPS) is designed to provide students with the skills and training necessary for employment as an entry level Sterile Processing Technician. The program includes an on-campus lecture component, and an off-campus externship component. The curriculum is designed to provide instruction in anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, infection and preventive controls, instrument assembling, packaging, regulations and compliances, and sterilization procedures. The final externship portion of the curriculum is structured to include supervised experiences in the clinical environment that require competencies, logs, and evaluations completed by the student. At the conclusion of the program, graduates who have diligently attended class and their externship, studied, and practiced their skills should have the skills to seek entry-level employment as a sterile processing technician.
