Every year, medical professionals draw blood to help physicians diagnose illness, treat patients, and save lives. Known as phlebotomy, the skill involves drawing blood for tests, transfusions, research, and blood donations. There is a need for responsible people with calm dispositions to work in the field of phlebotomy.
As a trained phlebotomist, you’ll be responsible for drawing a patient’s blood to obtain blood samples or collect donations. The Phlebotomy program is designed to prepare you to collect blood specimens by skin puncture and venipuncture. You’ll learn how to safely get samples using proper procedures, equipment, and techniques while maintaining governmental standards.
As a phlebotomist, you may find employment at facilities such as hospitals, patient service centers, life insurance companies, doctors’ offices, outreach services, and donor centers.
