For those who want to work hands-on with patients and have a keen eye for detail, phlebotomy is an excellent way to get started in the medical profession.
Certified phlebotomists work directly with patients to obtain specimens for laboratory tests or blood donations. They must pay close attention to safety precautions, use proper patient identification techniques. A good bedside manner is also important to help calm anxious patients.
