SPOTLIGHT

JAMES THAXTON ENJOYS HIS CAREER
AS A SURGICAL TECHNOLOGIST AT LAWNWOOD

IRSC’s Quick Job Training programs prepare students for employment in a year or less.  One of the most popular of these programs focuses on surgical technology.  James Thaxton, of Fort Pierce, completed the program in May and is now working as a certified surgical technologist at Lawnwood Regional Medical Center.  He prepares the operating room for each patient and assists the surgeon during operations.

“I was attracted to this career by the desire to be an important team member,” he said.  “There’s never a dull moment. Each surgery is different from craniotomies to broken legs.”

The 36-year-old embarked on his new career after working as a chef and a musician playing classical piano.  “IRSC is a reputable college, with friendly staff and great teachers,” he added.
