A career as a Phlebotomy Technician is a rewarding path for someone who desires to work directly with patients. Phlebotomy Technicians use care and skill to obtain blood specimens from patients for analysis in the clinical laboratory. Employment opportunities include, but are not limited to, hospitals, clinics, physicians' offices, reference laboratories and donor centers. 

The semester long phlebotomy courses (MLTP 101 Phlebotomy and MLTP 102 Applied Phlebotomy) are offered twice a year, once in the Fall and then again in the Spring. Although a certificate of completion is not conferred by CMU for the courses, students who successfully complete the two courses are eligible for national certification by examination for a Phlebotomy Technician (PBT) through the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP). 

Non-MLT majors and non-degree seeking students may apply and may be accepted if seating and clinical sites are available. Application deadlines are March 15 for the Fall courses and October 15 for the Spring courses. Instructions for submitting completed applications are located on the top section of the application. Applicants will be notified through their email accounts if they have been accepted or placed on an alternate list shortly after the application deadline has passed. Please see the Information Packet for detailed information regarding the courses, application process, and national certification.

For the Fall 2023 courses - Application deadline has been extended to May 1, 2023, or until all seats have been filled.
