Offered at our Downtown Campus, the Phlebotomy Program is designed to prepare the student with the opportunity to acquire the necessary skills for gainful employment as a phlebotomist, working under the supervision of a clinical laboratory supervisor. The phlebotomist is responsible for the proper collection, processing, and waive testing of blood specimens and various patient excretions in accordance with OSHA safety regulations and standards. This is a Certificate program and upon successful completion of this program the student may apply for a Certificate.
Upon successful completion of this program and graduate is eligible for application to the national licensing examination through the ASCP (American Society for Clinical Pathology).
The program curriculum consists of a combination of program-specific coursework and clinical learning experiences that are reflective of contemporary phlebotomy practice. Phlebotomy coursework can be completed in one semester with the curriculum consisting of approximately 60 hours of general coursework and approximately 120 hours of clinical externship for a total of 6 credit hours.
The Phlebotomy Program admits students in the fall and spring semesters of each year.
