This program trains students to draw blood specimens, via venipuncture and skin puncture, to aide doctors in the diagnosis and/or treatment of patient’s health issues. This short-term program with institutionally-organized, hands-on clinical training can lead to a life-long career as a phlebotomist. It can serve as a springboard into other occupations such as a Medical Assistant, Medical Laboratory Technician, Licensed Practical Nurse, or a Registered Nurse.
