Phlebotomists collect human blood samples for the purpose of medical laboratory testing.

  • Select and prepare skin puncture sites
  • Use a variety of blood drawing techniques
  • Prepare and maintain laboratory supplies and equipment
  • Provide professional, safe, quality patient care.
Students who successfully complete this program will be prepared to sit for the ASCP Board of Registry Phlebotomy exam.
