A phlebotomist is a health care professional who is trained to draw blood from a patient in a safe and sanitary manner. Phlebotomists may draw blood samples for tests or collect blood donations.
Those interested in phlebotomy often enroll in a program at a college or a technical school. During these programs, students learn how to draw blood and how to properly interact with patients. After completing an education program, students can choose to become certified professionals.
