Sept. 9, 2020 (Courtesy of Mayo College of Medicine and Science) The Phlebotomy Technician Certificate Program at Mayo Clinic is available to students located in Rochester, Minnesota and Jacksonville, Florida. Mayo Clinic offers the best approved training to become a phlebotomist. You will learn how to collect samples from patients and how to prepare these samples for testing.
Through this nine-week program, students will gain the knowledge and skills needed to work in an outpatient clinic setting or an inpatient (hospital) setting.
You can expect:
- A curriculum that includes a blended classroom and online learning schedule, with hands-on lab and clinical experiences completed on campus beginning the second week of the program.
- A focus on real-world knowledge and application where students will draw hundreds of samples from actual patients, preparing each to be a well-rounded and confident phlebotomist.
- The opportunity to begin working in the field quickly with the potential to start a career at Mayo Clinic, where 90 percent of graduates go on to work as phlebotomists.
The training is focused on developing Mayo Clinic’s future workforce — meaning after graduation, if students are the right candidates and positions are available, many of the graduates go on to work at Mayo Clinic directly out of training.
