What is Phlebotomy?
Most areas of medicine rely on diagnostic testing often on blood. Phlebotomists collect the blood necessary for testing; allowing the physician and health care provider to make informed decisions. Skilled phlebotomists can find hidden veins, introduce a needle into a vein, and extract blood with little or no discomfort to the patient.
Successful graduates of our Phlebotomy Program gain essential skills and education in phlebotomy that will enable future phlebotomists to effectively communicate and interact personally and professionally in a health care setting. To date, the Phlebotomy Program at the APLMED academy has graduated more than 200 students!
Since the phlebotomist is considered a part of the laboratory team, they must be trained in all aspects of specimen collection and processing. Our program includes safe and efficient work practices that teach students to:
- Obtain specimens
- Collect blood by venipuncture or capillary
- Handle specimens
- Proper labeling, sorting, and preparation for testing
- Communication skills
- Emergency procedure
As students learn with hands-on training by a certified and working phlebotomist instructor they will also take part in an unpaid externship to gain “real-life” experience before entering job opportunities. Upon successful completion of the Phlebotomy Program at APLMED Academy and completing externship, graduates earn a Certificate in Phlebotomy.
APLMED Academy maintains a maximum capacity per Phlebotomy class as eight students, with three groups starting simultaneously. Former students of this program praise it for the intimate classroom interactions and teaching methods.
