Wallace's Affordable Educational Opportunities
George C Wallace Community College (WCC)–Dothan, a great college within the Community, inspires and facilitates learning to prepare and promote economic and social development in its constituents for emerging and existing opportunities.
WCC has committed itself to education on equal opportunities. The College’s principles of philosophy and practice are that people should not receive different treatment for the reasons of race, faith, religion, color, sex, age, national origin, disability, and marital status. This principle applies particularly to student admission to all the College’s programs and academic activities. It is also applicable to extracurricular activities, student services, and the work of college students and teachers and non-educational staff.
The foundation accepts donations on behalf of cash, securities, goods, and equipment. WCC strives to provide affordable educational opportunities for its constituents, to support economic growth and to improve the quality of life.
To help units at each level to measure and improve student learning and outcomes, the Institutional Efficiency Office (IE) provides information and data expertise, enabling continuous improvement in all areas, and accumulation, creation, transmission, and dissemination of institutional information to support the evaluation of learning by students.
In the autumn of 2019, Wallace Community College-Dothan (WCCD) will formally open a new Program on Surgical Technology. The program will supplement the seven existing credit science programs. The program has, in part, been made possible through a Wiregrass Foundation grant, supported by the Southeast Health and Flowers Hospital. A coordinated effort between these cohorts was formed to develop a Surgical Technology Program, which was directed by an accredited institution in the field.
Surgical technicians are a component of the surgical team. They are preparing surgical rooms, sterilizing equipment, ensuring adequate procedural provisions, prepared people, counting supplies, and maintaining a sterile environment. Technologists can pass surgeons or helpers instruments and supplies, install equipment and prepare the room of the next patient during the surgery.
The five-semester program includes associates in applied science (69 semester hours) and certification (60 semester hours). Students will be eligible to receive the A.A.S in Surgical Technology or Surgical Technology Certificate upon completion.
