Phlebotomy Technician

The phlebotomy technician program prepares the learner to function as a member of the healthcare delivery team, performing the role of a phlebotomist. The phlebotomist generally works in a clinical laboratory under the supervision of the appropriate professional. He/she is responsible for collection procedures in both outpatient clinical and hospital inpatient settings for the purpose of laboratory analysis, including emergency and routine collection procedures from veins, skin puncture areas and arteries on patients of all ages.

The program is a two semester technical diploma of 17 or 18 credits. The 18 credit option is recommended if you are considering other health career programs in the future. A Caregiver Background Check is required.
