As a phlebotomy technician, you will be qualified to work in a hospital, in a doctor’s clinic or other related healthcare facilities.
Starting in the summer 2019 semester, the Phlebotomy program will be a one-semester certificate program. It will be offered every semester (summer, fall and spring).
The program includes classroom and clinical experience in the following discipline areas:
PLAB 1323 - Phlebotomy (Lecture and Lab)
PLAB 1460 - Clinical Rotations - include hands-on experience in a variety of clinical facilities.
After completion of the Phlebotomy Lecture, a criminal history record and drug screen will be required of each student prior to admission to clinical rotations. Information on where and when to complete this will be given to each student (Please do not complete this otherwise, as we are not able to accept records from outside agencies, records carried in or records outside of the proper time frame.)
Upon completion, the student will be eligible to take a national certifying examination.
