PPMC Surgical Techs Climb the Ladder

Surg-tech-promotion-pictureCongratulations are in order for PPMC’s first surgical technicians to climb the new Clinical Ladder program for Surgical Technicians, a model developed by Lori Fowler-Gagliardi, RN, MBA, CNOR, Clinical Director of Perioperative Services, in coordination with colleagues in Administration and Human Resources. The program is similar in nature to the Nursing Clinical Ladder program and aims to improve and reward professional development in the following core areas: 


  • Clinical judgment and decision making
  • Employee and client/family relationship, including community service
  • Clinical leadership
  • Clinical scholarship 

The purpose of the Surgical Technician Clinical Ladder is to recognize employees for their contributions to quality care, as well as their clinical knowledge and professional achievements. It is designed to provide advancement opportunities for employees who choose to focus on clinical practice.
