Start your career in the healthcare field with a Phlebotomy certificate.

Phlebotomists are medical professionals who collect specimens from patients for various lab tests and procedures. Many professionals who plan to become a nurse or a medical technologist often start out by working in a medical office or hospital as a phlebotomist. Phlebotomy entails a fairly short training period and is a great way for you to begin your medical profession. Jobs for phlebotomists are available at hospitals, medical offices, clinics and reference labs.

Graduates are eligible to sit for the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP) exam. Certification testing fees are included in the program tuition. Certification provides a better opportunity for employment over non-certified candidates, as well as increases the earning potential. Our program utilizes industry-standard laboratories and medical equipment to prepare you in on-campus laboratories, as well as provide you with clinical experience at a local healthcare affiliate.
