As a phlebotomy technician, some of your duties include properly identifying the patient, explaining the procedure to him/her, and using personal protective equipment to ensure safety at all times. You would also need to prepare and clean the areas for drawing blood samples and proper labeling of the samples.
We offer a 6-week program designed to increase the marketability of our students while the practical design of the curriculum prepares our graduates for immediate employment.
The Phlebotomy course introduces the elements of the medical field and structure. Topics include terminology, anatomy, physiology, testing, safety (OSHA), infection control, specimen collection, handling and processing, professional and legal issues, and point of care testing. Emphasis is placed on building familiarity and procedures as it relates to venipuncture and other specimen collections for processing
