Phlebotomy Technician

The word Phlebotomist or Phlebotomy Technician is applied to a person who has trained in diverse techniques to perform phlebotomy procedures. Phlebotomy is performed to obtain blood for analytic purposes, monitor set treatments, and to remove blood for transfusions at a donor center as well as for healing purposes.
Phlebotomy technicians are needed in different areas throughout the healthcare industry including hospitals, physicians' offices, laboratories, clinics, HMO, insurance carriers, blood banks, dialysis centers, and medical group practices. A well prepared phlebotomist must possess strong communication skills, good manual dexterity, and excellent organizational skills.
