6-Week Accelerated Path
No tuition or application fee.
Must apply and be hired as a St. Luke's employee prior to session start. Hired into paid position with benefits.
Automatic enrollment to the school upon hire.
Clinical externship-last week of session.

This path requires individuals to be hired as a St. Luke's employee. Once hired, the individual is automatically enrolled into a paid, 6-week program. The program includes five weeks of lectures and technique, and one week of clinical internship.

Employment is contingent on agreeing to a 12-month commitment to a St. Luke's phlebotomist position and the successful completion of the St. Luke's School of Phlebotomy program.

Our 6-Week Accelerated Path provides phlebotomy education through the combined delivery of didactic/theory in a classroom setting, as well as clinical experience in our outpatient lab patient service centers. All of our phlebotomy training classes are comprehensive and emphasize a “hands-on” method – each student will learn a variety of phlebotomy techniques in every class, progress to collecting blood specimens on other class members (with supervision), and then ultimately supporting patients at a patient service center. In addition, you will learn the “tricks of the trade” that will help with special patients and difficult draws. A unique feature of our program is that we also focus on pediatric phlebotomy as part of our curriculum.
