What is a Phlebotomist?

Phlebotomy is the name for drawing blood, derived from the greek word “Phlebo-” meaning pertaining to a blood vessel and “-tomia” meaning cutting off. A person that draws blood is called a phlebotomist, and the actual procedure associated with phlebotomy is called venipuncture. Looking for Phlebotomy training near me?

Our Phlebotomy Graduate Testimonials

Kristen P.

“I definitely recommend Family Health Services, I had a great experience here for my Blood Withdrawal Course for research assistants. I’m a huge fan of small class sizes, so I was happy to get a lot of one on one time with the instructors.”
