This is a 4-week phlebotomy course that provides the experienced student with additional skills and training in order to succeed in the healthcare field as a phlebotomist or other healthcare professional. This course is intended to compliment the student's current medical training and/or experience. This course contains lecture, discussion, and practical instruction.
