Be part of the health care team

Phlebotomists are an integral part of a healthcare team and provide a needed service to the community. Aside from simply taking a patient’s blood, phlebotomists also provide comfort to patients and calm others who await life-changing diagnosis from blood samples. There are an array of job opportunities for phlebotomists, which include working in clinical labs, hospitals, community health centers, nursing homes, doctor’s offices, blood donation centers, nursing homes and more. Career opportunities in phlebotomy are expected to grow rapidly, with thousands of job openings nationally and statewide.

Get on the path to success

San Juan College offers affordable phlebotomy courses that prepare students for employment. The classes emphasize theory and skills of phlebotomy, including anatomy and physiology, safety and specimen collection and processing. Students who successfully complete two phlebotomy courses, offered through the School of Health Sciences, will be prepared to take the national certification examination. The first course (MLTS 160) focuses on the theory of phlebotomy practices, while the second course (MLT 161) includes valuable clinical experience throughout the Four Corners area.
