A phlebotomist is a healthcare professional who is trained to draw blood from a patient in a safe and sanitary manner. Phlebotomists may draw blood samples for tests or collect blood donations, depending on where the phlebotomist works. Often, phlebotomists work in a clinic laboratory with other clinical laboratory technologists who screen and test the samples that are collected.

Employment opportunities for phlebotomists are expected to be good as the demand for skilled laboratory personnel increases. The market is expected to increase 10%-20% over the next decade. The rapidly growing older population will be a major reason for thisgrowth, since older people tend to have more medical problems that will require lab work. The fastest growth in this field is expected in independent medical laboratories because hospitals continue to send a greater amount of their lab work to outside facilities.
