The Phlebotomy curriculum prepares individuals to obtain blood and other specimens for the purpose of laboratory analysis. Course work includes proper specimen collection and handling, communication skills, and maintaining patient data.
Graduates may qualify for employment in hospitals, clinics, physicians’ offices, and other health care settings and may be eligible for national certification as phlebotomy technicians.
NOTE: The Phlebotomy program is a limited-enrollment program. Eligible applicants are admitted on a space available basis to the program in the fall or spring semester, provided they have met both general and program admission requirements and are offered admission.
