NEW CLC Program Offering - Phlebotomy Certificate

The Phlebotomy Technician Certificate (17 credit) is designed to prepare students for career opportunities in the rapidly growing, high-demand field of health care support. Instruction is already in place during the fall semester of the Medical Assistant Program. This certificate would enable students to complete the academic requirements for a phlebotomy technician in one semester and complete the internship requirements following instruction. 

A Phlebotomy Technician (Phlebotomist) is an integral member of the medical laboratory team whose primary function is the collection of blood samples from patients via venipuncture or microtechniques. The Phlebotomy Technician facilitates the collection and transportation of laboratory specimens, and is often the patient's only contact with the medical laboratory. The need to assure quality and patient safety mandates strict professional behavior and standards of practice for Phlebotomists.
