Phlebotomy Technician


The Phlebotomy Technician is generally known as a blood collector is an individual who performs phlebotomy, or collects blood samples. They generally assist in the collection and transportation of specimen other than venous blood (arterial blood, urine, tissues, sputum) and may also perform some clinical and technical functions. However, the primary function of the phlebotomist is in assisting the other members of the health care team in maintaining some accurate, safe and reliable collection and transportation of specimens for clinical laboratory analyses. This program teaches the student the standard clinical medical laboratory procedures as well as laboratory studies and instructions covering topics like specimen collection, urinalysis, basic office bacteriology, hematology, and chemistry. The study will include all aspects of medical laboratory safety, standard precautional measures, and quality control. They will learn to perform functions like venipuncture and capillary punctures. And above all, students will be equipped with the knowledge to handle various safety and clinical equipment.
