What does a Blood Lab Specialist do?
The Blood Lab Specialist Program gives graduates the opportunity to fill various positions within a laboratory, doctor’s office, hospital, and various other healthcare facilities while having all the necessary skills to work as an independent contractor in the mobile health exam field. Larock’s Blood Lab Specialist Program will provide you with multiple certificates in areas of: Phlebotomy Technician, Clinical Lab Assistant, and a workshop certificate in Paramedical Examiner.
- Phlebotomy Technicians work directly with patients to obtain the specimens necessary to perform testing for diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.
