The EKG/Phlebotomy course is a component of the Allied Health Training and runs for approximately 12 Weeks (240 Hours) and consists of two concurrent phases: didactic(classroom) and clinical (in hospital or clinic).
For the didactic phase, Day Classes meet Monday thru Friday from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm. Through lecture, multi-media and on-line interactive experiences participants will gain the skills necessary to perform EKG’s or “Electrocardiography”, or the process of recording the electrical activity of the heart over a period of time using electrodes placed on a patient’s body. The student will also learn to administer blood draws or “venipuncture” for patients. Students will then be placed in clinical’s where they can gain experience in a supervised setting.
The clinical phase begins during the third week of the didactic phase of the course. Students will be assigned to a clinical site. The available shifts will be announced but generally include day, evening, and weekends shifts. In the clinical phase, students are rotated through hospitals and affiliated community clinics. Students function on a one-to-one basis, performing EKG’s, and drawing blood from actual patients, under the direct supervision of a laboratory supervisor and/or licensed EKG/Phlebotomist preceptor. This course will be offered at the main location or satellite location as announced.
