How to Becoma a Phlebotomist

Phlebotomists are clinical technicians who work in medical laboratories. It is their job to take blood samples from patients. To get started in phlebotomy, you need to complete an associate’s degree program from a vocational school or community college, choosing from online or in-class training. In a phlebotomy training program, you will learn the skills needed for safe and relatively painless blood sampling through lectures, scheduled activities, and labs. Phlebotomy schools’ curricula include coursework in the human circulatory system and proper specimen handling and testing. Most programs include internships that allow you to practice your skills in a real clinical setting.
