Work Policy

The CSI student work policy:

  • All CSI surgical first assisting clinical activities (clinical rotations) are considered educational in nature and will provide students the security of medical control and accountability over the patient's care.
  • CSI surgical first assisting students are not permitted to operate as independent practitioners during clinical rotation assignments and as such at no time will the student be allowed to perform the duties of an SFA without a pre-approved physician proctor in attendance and scrubbed in (on sterile cases) to supervise the students activities and performance.
  • There must be unequivocal evidence that CSI surgical first assistant students are working with documented pre-approved clinical (physician) proctors, and within the CSI clinical affiliation agreements while they are on clinical assignment (rotation).
