Just a little poke — and a job!

Phlebotomy Technicians (Phlebotomists) are an integral member of the medical laboratory team. Their primary function is the collection of blood samples from patients.

Phlebotomy Technicians sometimes are the only person a patient will interact with at the lab, so they must be able to be patient with patients — and be able to calm patients.
