This phlebotomy course prepares each student to draw blood specimens from patients in a clinical facility.
Highlights of the Program
A phlebotomist plays a vital part in healthcare by collecting blood specimens from
patients for laboratory testing, which is used in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
Students will learn to draw blood and other specimens from patients in a clinical facility.
Phlebotomists perform venipunctures, finger sticking, or heel sticking to obtain specimens. In addition, phlebotomists also work with laboratory personnel to manage, process and transport specimens collected from patients. In some settings, phlebotomists may perform bedside testing.
After receiving your certification, you will be able to work in a hospital, physician office or an independent lab.
