Phlebotomy Program

Program Overview

The phlebotomist is a major player in the field of laboratory medicine. The diagnosis of a patient is dependent on the quality of blood specimens collected by the phlebotomist.

In this fast-paced 10-week program you will spend five weeks in class learning the basics of collecting blood specimens by venipuncture and by skin puncture. You will have lectures on anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, safety and infection control and the procedures. After passing this portion of the class with a grade of "C" or better, you will move on to five weeks of clinical rotations.

At the end of the program, you will take a comprehensive examination and will be eligible to sit for a national certifying examination.

Clinical rotations will be in a variety of settings within Carolinas HealthCare System. The classroom portion of the program is on the campus of Carolinas College. There is also an online component to the program.
