Phlebotomists draw blood for tests, transfusions, research, or blood donations. Phlebotomists work mainly in hospitals, medical and diagnostic laboratories, blood donor centers, and doctors’ offices.
Dixie State University offers a one-semester phlebotomy course. Participants must have excellent interpersonal skills and a strong interest in the healthcare field. Students are required to practice venipuncture procedures on each other as part of the laboratory experience. View more details about the course here.
