Anesthesia Technicians must have clinical rotation in the same manner as RTs, CCPs and RNs etc. whether It's at other hospitals and/or with in their on institution (hospital) It's standard other wise how would they learn about the operating room environment (O.R.) and off site areas such as;
L & D
that pertain to anesthesia practice when assisting Anesthesiologists, Anesthesia Residents and CRNAs/AA-Cs with in the ACT.
Prime example, Sandford-Brown College Anesthesia Technology Program must have clinical rotation (Associate of Applied Science degree in Anesthesia Technology - AAS, A.T. and/or A.T., AAS).
Fact:There are anesthesia technician students (AT-S) from SBC, AAS, AT who are actually doing clinical roation at my place of institution where I'm employed as well as four other surrounding major hospitals.
Again best of luck to you in AA school.
