Phlebotomy is the collection of blood specimens using venipuncture
and dermal puncture techniques. Phlebotomists are often the first
member of the laboratory team that the patient encounters. For this
reason, students considering a career in phlebotomy should possess
good communication skills in addition to being able to perform
technical procedures accurately and react professionally in critical
situations. Phlebotomists work in hospitals, outpatient clinics,
commercial labs, blood centers, physicians' office labs and others.

Students who complete all required phlebotomy courses with grades of
C or better will receive a basic vocational specialist certificate
from ECC.
