This training prepares the student to draw blood specimens from patients for the purpose of testing and analyzing blood.  A phlebotomist’s job includes maintenance of equipment used in obtaining blood specimens, the use of appropriate communication skills when working with patients, the selection of venipuncture sites, the care of blood specimens and the entry of the testing process into the computer, as well as clerical duties associated with record keeping.  This course consists of theory and clinical experiences which will be available in the hospital, outpatient clinics and central processing areas.

Important!:  Students will have to practice venipuncture which includes being stuck and sticking others.
