AST sponsors an annual national conference that features renowned public and medical presentations. The five-day event includes targeted workshops for educators, surgical assistants, students and practitioners seeking intensive, hands-on training, as well as education sessions that cover a range of specialty areas.
Join AST for their conference. Every year, more than 2,000 surgical technologists and surgical assistants gather at this event, because it's the only nationwide professional conference designed exclusively for them.
The Association of Surgical Technologists was established in 1969 by members of the American College of Surgeons (ACS), the American Hospital Association (AHA), and the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN).
