A career as a phlebotomy technician is a rewarding path for someone who desires to work directly with patients. Phlebotomists use care and skill to obtain blood specimens from patients for analysis in the clinical laboratory. Laboratory testing personnel and physicians depend upon the phlebotomist to collect quality patient specimens in order to produce quality laboratory results. Phlebotomy technicians are trained to create an atmosphere of trust and confidence in patients while drawing blood specimens in a skillful and safe manner. Employment opportunities include, but are not limited to, hospitals, clinics, physicians' offices, laboratories and blood banks.

Information regarding the courses, national certification, and the application can be found in the information packet.
