About the Program
Are you a good communicator and detail-oriented person? Are you compassionate and empathetic? With these qualities and your ability to stay calm in potentially stressful situations, the Phlebotomy Program is your passport into the medical field. We provide you the opportunity to learn skills in a hands-on environment, working with blood specimens and other patient fluids in accordance with OSHA safety regulations and standards.
You will acquire patient communication skills, study anatomy and physiology, and come to understand legal and ethical patient considerations. The phlebotomist is responsible for the proper collection, processing, and waive testing of blood specimens and various patient excretions. Upon completion, you’ll be eligible to take the national licensing exam through the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP).
This is the only phlebotomy certificate program currently offered in Santa Fe, and you can complete the curriculum in one semester—only 16 weeks.
