Phlebotomy Technician Training with Externship  

Phlebotomy is a fast starting point to launch your medical career. Experience as a phlebotomist will help open opportunities for promotions and advancement. Phlebotomy Technicians are critical team members at hospitals, diagnostic laboratories and blood donor centers. Jobs are also projected to grow 27 percent, much faster than other healthcare-related fields. Phlebotomy is more than just taking blood. Laboratories rely on phlebotomy technicians to collect quality samples from patients to produce quality lab results. To do this, a phlebotomy technician must create an atmosphere of trust and confidence with patients while drawing blood specimens in a skillful, safe, and reliable manner.

The phlebotomy training program is broken into three segments: 60 hours of online lectures/exercises and 100 hours of externships (must have 100 successful, unaided blood collections including venipunctures and skin punctures). Students will be trained to collect, transport, handle and process blood and other specimens for laboratory analysis using venipuncture and micro collection techniques.
