Phlebotomy is the act of drawing or removing blood from the circulatory system, through an incision or puncture in a vein – or artery – in order to obtain a blood sample for analysis and diagnosis. A person who draws blood professionally is known as a phlebotomist.
Our intense 10-day Phlebotomy training includes:
- 32 hrs of Lecture
- 32 hrs of Hands-On Training
- Professional Externship (for qualifying students)
DRM ILC has relationships with a variety of local hospitals & medical laboratories and can provide externships to qualifying students. This experience will require you to perform at least 120 blood draws on actual patients and will provide you with the knowledge and on-the-job training you need to safely and skillfully obtain a blood sample from a patient while working in a professional setting.
After completing our phlebotomy training and externship, you will be eligible to sit for the National Healthcare Association’s (NHA) Certification Exam to become a Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT).
