Phlebotomy, one of the fastest growing career fields, is an ideal occupation for anyone interested in working in the healthcare industry. A phlebotomist is responsible for drawing blood samples as well as preparing and properly storing them for transportation to a diagnostic lab. Topics such as the role of the phlebotomist, patient identification, collection and preparation of blood and body fluid specimens, and maintenance of records and collection areas will be covered. Anatomically correct arms, prosthetics and human blood draws will be used in this program.
