The phlebotomist is a major player in the field of laboratory medicine. The diagnosis of a patient is dependent on the quality of blood specimens collected by the phlebotomist.

Program Overview

In this fast-paced, 200-hour program you will spend five weeks (Summer semester) or seven weeks (Fall and spring semesters) in class and online learning the basics of collecting blood specimens by venipuncture and by skin puncture. You will have lectures on anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, safety and infection control and the procedures. After completing this portion of the class, you will move on to five weeks of clinical rotations.

At the end of the program, you will take a comprehensive examination and will be eligible to sit for a national certifying examination. The phlebotomy program is approved by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS).
