Phlebotomists work directly with patients. Medical laboratories depend on the phlebotomy technician to collect quality laboratory results. To do this, the phlebotomy technician must create an atmosphere of trust and confidence with patients while drawing blood specimens in a skillful, safe, and reliable manner. This course introduces basic medical terminology, anatomy, physiology, components of health care delivery, and clinical laboratory structure. It teaches techniques of specimen collection, specimen handling, and patient interactions. The course includes both lecture and clinical laboratory experiences. (Clinical hours are generally between the hours of 8am - 5pm.) Exam voucher and exam review guide are included with tuition. Exam voucher must be used within one year from class completion.
