Explore the Phlebotomy Program

Phlebotomists are medical professionals who draw blood from patients for various lab tests and procedures. This one-semester program of study prepares the student for employment as an entry-level Phlebotomist by teaching them the techniques and theory needed to successfully take and pass the national certification exam and enter the health care field.

"My instructors at EFSC really cared about each of us & wanted us to succeed. What really helped was having so many hours of hands-on training while I was a student, including clinical rotations at Parrish, which led to a job."
