Phlebotomy Technician (Phlebotomist) Training Program

A phlebotomy technician is responsible for saving more lives than any other healthcare professional, albeit indirectly. The phlebotomy technician provides blood samples to a pathologist; and the testing of a blood sample is usually the primary means for diagnosis and treatment of any infectious diseases as well as internal dysfunctions and disorders.

Phlebotomy is both a science and an art. It’s the science of drawing blood and the art of locating the vein correctly and causing minimum pain to the subject in the process.

The phlebotomist is one of the first persons an anxious patient meets. The phlebotomy technician handles patients with good people skills, makes them feel relaxed, and ensures that the procedure is done quickly & easily.
