Phlebotomy Training in Clearwater
Study the process of collecting blood.
Phlebotomy is the practice of piercing a vein and drawing blood from patients. Phlebotomy technicians are trained to perform this process with as little pain and discomfort for the patient as possible. They’re also trained to calm patients, handle blood, label blood, and transport it to a testing laboratory. In UMA’s Phlebotomy Technician program, your coursework will focus on the skills necessary for this important healthcare field.
UMA’s Phlebotomy Technician program also includes an 80-hour unpaid externship at a medical office, clinic, laboratory, or hospital. During this time, you’ll get real-world hands-on training under supervision. It’s a great way to learn the practical skills necessary for a career as a phlebotomy technician.
This program’s coursework prepares students to take the Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) exam which is required by some states and employers to work in this field.
