Phlebotomists are trained to draw blood in labs, hospitals and physician's offices. The phlebotomy program is two semesters long. Phlebotomy is an eight-credit program and consists of a lecture/lab class that meets two days a week the first semester, and a 120-hour internship the second semester. Upon successful completion of the lecture/lab class, students are eligible to participate in the 120-hour internship at a lab working with actual patients. Students must make themselves available five days per week for the length of the internship.
