An Important Part of The Medical Team
Phlebotomy Technician Program prepares students to collect blood specimens from patients for the purpose of laboratory analysis. Both daytime and evening programs are available. Students will become familiar with all aspects related to blood collection, and develop comprehensive skills to perform venipuncture competently and safely. Lectures include basic anatomy and physiology with emphasis on the circulatory system, introduction to collection, risk factors and complications, quality assurance in specimen collection, as well as professional behavior and responsibilities in patient care settings. Blood collection laboratories, hospitals, blood banks, dialysis centers, plasma collection centers, insurance companies, clinics and physician offices depend on the phlebotomist to collect, process and transport quality samples from the patient to produce accurate laboratory results.
