The Phlebotomy Technician facilitates the collection and transportation of laboratory specimens, and is often the patient’s only contact with the medical laboratory. A Phlebotomy Technician also draws blood for transfusions, donations and research. Students practice blood drawing on each other and sometimes on an artificial arm.
