6 Week Certificate Program: Lexington Campus Only

What is a Phlebotomy Technician?

Students who earn their Phlebotomy Certification will be prepared to collect blood for donations or testing by way of venipuncture or skin puncture.

• Properly sanitize all equipment before each use; maintain a clean lab
• Communicate a clear explanation of procedures to patients and donors
• Accurately label, provide storage and carefully transport blood collections
• Collect patient information for data entry

Most Phlebotomy Technicians work full time finding employment during day and evening hours.  Travel could be an option for several healthcare providers.

I would recommend MedQuest to everyone I know

I leave every day having learned something new. Every day we do something hands-on and the teachers are wonderful. Our small class sizes help to grasp the concepts better. The available technology and resources really help you to understand the dental office better. I have absolutely no complaints about this school.
