What will I study?
The phlebotomy program courses (HPR 112 & HPR 113 & HPR 101) are based at the Centennial Campus on South Academy only.
At PPCC Phlebotomy students will learn to acquire specimens for laboratory analysis. This may include blood draws, urinalysis, point of care testing, such as blood sugar, urine pregnancy, rapid beta strep and influenza testing.
Specimen collection is only part of the job, processing and deciding which tests can be done locally or must be transported to a laboratory for analysis is also part of the decision making process.
Students will learn applicable anatomy & physiology, medical terminology, customer service in healthcare and law & ethics in healthcare. Beginning and advanced techniques for blood drawing are completed in two separate classes.
