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.
