Phlebotomy Schools & Training
Most phlebotomy schools only require that students have a high school diploma or GED to begin training. Because phlebotomy requires hands on training most phlebotomy schools look to recruit students within their state. Phlebotomists learn infection control, safety & first aid, medical terminology, as well as anatomy and physiology of organ systems. Classes also cover topics such as specimen handling, transportation and processing. Becoming a phlebotomist is a common entry point into healthcare professions.
