Meet Jacob Muth - Surgical Technologist Program Director

Posted On 2/4/2013

Mr. Jacob Muth is the Program Director for the Surgical Technologist Program here at Great Lakes Institute of Technology. He's been with our school for over 4 years now, has a Bachelor's Degree from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, is a Certified Surgical Technologist, and offers 10 years of experience in the field. What he likes about Great Lakes is the dedication he sees within the staff that ensures that each and every student becomes successful in their chosen career path. Our Surgical Technologist program is 17 months long. Graduates have gone to work at places like UPMC Hamot, Cleveland Clinic Foundation and Johns Hopkins University!

Mr. Muth is a Program Director as well as an instructor. He enjoys teaching the newest procedures to the students and believes that our students are the future. He feels privileged to be a part of their education ensuring that they are taught properly giving them an edge in the field. His favorite type of student is the student that is 100% dedicated to their education and career. These students come to school every day, ask questions, and put in maximum effort with a stable temperament and have a "never give up" attitude. If you've been to Great Lakes then you will know this is a majority of his students.

While not at work he enjoys working on cars, fishing, hunting, and staying abreast of the newest and latest surgical procedures. He is dedicated to his career and to furthering the education in his students. Being an instructor can be challenging. Teaching an ever-changing, fast paced program can be difficult but making sure that students are taught the most recent technologies is what is important to Mr. Muth.
