Medical Assisting - Phlebotomy Program AGS Degree

The phlebotomy curriculum prepares the student for employment as a phlebotomist with job opportunities in a medical office, clinic or healthcare facility. The phlebotomist is trained to draw blood through a method called venipuncture. A venipuncture is performed when a large specimen of blood is needed for testing.

Any student wishing to pursue an associate degree can apply all 17 credits from the Phlebotomy Skills Certificate toward an Associate in General Studies (AGS) degree. Depending on the desired career path, discuss other options for an associate degree with an academic advisor. All program required courses must have been completed with a grade of 2.0 or better.

Not all courses are offered each semester. Students should work with an academic advisor to develop a schedule that will work for them. Students planning to transfer should check the transfer institution’s requirements/guides or discuss their options with an academic advisor. Number of credits may vary depending on the course selection.
