Baptist Hospital Laboratory School of Phlebotomy
Looking for a rewarding career in patient care? Consider becoming a phlebotomist. Baptist Hospital Laboratory School of Phlebotomy classes are held throughout the year. No more than eight candidates are selected per class. See the listing below for the 2019 schedule.
New this year: We are pleased to announce that the Baptist Hospital Laboratory School of Phlebotomy now offers PAID positions for the duration of the training course.
Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and have a high school diploma or GED certificate. If an applicant is accepted into the training program, they will be required to pass all pre-employment assessments. These assessments include but are not limited to a level II background screening, drug screening, nicotine screening and work history verification. Students must purchase a textbook, supply their own uniforms and shoes, and have adequate transportation. Students are only allowed a total of two excused or unexcused absences during the entire three month program.
Classes are 12 weeks with a two week classroom lecture phase and a ten week clinical rotation phase. Students are asked for a commitment of Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (time variance for some clinical locations). Once applications are submitted, interviews are held approximately one month prior to the class start date. After the interview date, the applicants may log back into the website for the status of their application.
Applicants receive a certificate of completion only after all requirements have been met. Baptist Health Care does not promise or guarantee any student employment with any of our facilities. Upon completion of the Baptist Hospital Laboratory School of Phlebotomy, the students will possess the knowledge to safely and correctly perform venipunctures, explain the requirements for any tests ordered, work efficiently in a laboratory setting and have an understanding of the teamwork involved in patient care. Graduates will be eligible to sit for the American Society of Clinical Pathology phlebotomy technician exam, a widely recognized national certification for laboratory professionals.
NOTE: Applicants must apply online: Visit our Baptist Health Care Careers page. Then enter phlebotomy tech intern in the keyword search box. The applications only will be available two months prior to the class dates.
