Phlebotomy Training

Description

The Phlebotomy Training Program integrates theoretical, practical and interpersonal skills, providing the basis for the trainee to effectively perform as an entry-level phlebotomist upon completion of the program. Classroom learning consists of 120 hours combined with an internship requirement of 50 successful venipunctures. The internship will be performed in a clinical laboratory or other health care facility, providing the trainee with the knowledge and skills necessary to take the national credentialing exam for phlebotomist. Phlebotomy technicians provide critical support to clinical practitioners, collecting and analyzing blood specimens among other lab duties. Good communication ability, fine motor skills and some mobility are required for phlebotomists to successfully perform in most clinical settings.
