See Details

In the laboratory, a highly skilled team of pathologists and medical technologists, medical laboratory technicians (MLT) and specialists work together to solve the mysteries, put the puzzles together, and answer the critical questions of medicine. Seventy to eighty percent of medical decisions made by physicians are based on laboratory findings. In fact, the practice of modern medicine would be impossible without the tests performed in the laboratory. Every day, new advances in genetic testing, biomarkers, and PCR (polymerase chain reaction) technology are creating more challenges and job opportunities for clinical laboratory science professionals. It is a fast-growing field, and there will be great demand for clinical laboratory professionals in the future. Clinical laboratory professionals are the researchers, the investigators, and some say the real heroes of medicine.

Phlebotomist

Phlebotomy Certificate

See Details

Our Phlebotomy Program is designed to train individuals to collect blood for laboratory analysis necessary for the diagnosis and care of the patient. This one-semester program trains the phlebotomist to perform venipuncture, capillary puncture, and CPR.

Phlebotomy is the study or art of drawing blood for diagnosing and treating health problems or for blood donation. People who specialize in this study are called phlebotomy technicians. Phlebotomy technicians work in hospitals, clinics, blood banks, clinical laboratories and diagnostic centers. Phlebotomy technicians play an important role in health care. The primary job of a phlebotomy technician is to take blood samples from patients. The blood samples might be taken either for diagnosing illness or for blood donation. Blood analysis is one of the most important diagnostic tools available to medical clinicians, so it is vitally important that a blood sample is obtained in a way that does not compromise it in any way. If more than one test has been ordered, blood collection tubes must be drawn in a very specific order, and the phlebotomist is responsible for knowing that order. Additionally, venipuncture is an invasive procedure that can be frightening or even painful to the patient if performed incorrectly.
