Phlebotomy instructors Emily Galindo & Sarah Yoldi.
Phlebotomy is the practice of drawing blood from patients and taking blood specimens to the laboratory to prepare for testing.
KCC offers non-credit phlebotomy classes in Klamath Falls and Lakeview (via synchronous delivery).
The $1595 course cost includes books and certification testing fees. The student is responsible for a criminal background check and drug screen.
This course is 10 weeks, with eight hours of classroom instruction per week, as well as a 40-hour externship with Sky Lakes Medical Center or Lake District Hospital to practice phlebotomy on real patients. Participation and attendance are mandatory to be placed in an internship and to take the national certification exam. At the end of the course, students will be eligible to take the National Healthcareer Association phlebotomy certification exam to become a certified phlebotomist.
