Program Description:

Phlebotomy is one of the oldest medical procedures dating back to the early Egyptians. It was initially used for removing blood or “blood letting” as it was commonly known and was done for therapeutic purposes. It is primarily performed now for the collection of blood specimens for laboratory analysis and is used to diagnose and monitor medical conditions. Phlebotomy plays a key role in laboratory testing and patient care. It is widely accepted that the quality of a laboratory test is only as good as the specimen that was obtained.
