Phlebotomists are part of the allied health care team who have been trained to perform phlebotomy procedures in hospitals, health care offices, medical laboratories, blood banks, and forensic agencies. Most commonly, phlebotomy procedures include obtaining blood for diagnostic testing, removing blood for transfusion purposes, and removing blood for therapeutic purposes in individuals with certain disease processes.
Upon completion of the program, graduates are eligible to take the PBT (ASCP), a national certification examination through the American Society for Clinical Pathology.
