Applications are due Sept. 1 for students interested in a Montana State University healthcare course offered this fall in Bozeman and Great Falls that combines online learning with hands-on training to prepare students for the Certified Phlebotomy Technician exam.

The course, which begins online on Sept. 22, is designed for people who plan to work for a clinical laboratory, public health department, clinic or hospital.

Students will participate in a month-long online course and a weekend of hands-on training at MSU-Bozeman, followed by a 100-hour supervised clinical experience that can be scheduled in either Bozeman or Great Falls.

After completing the classroom and clinical practicum components of the course, MSU will endorse students to take their exam through the American Society for Clinical Pathology in order to become a Certified Phlebotomy Technician.

The instructor is Sara Handl, who has been working as a clinical laboratory scientist for the past 18 years and teaches for MSU Extended University and MSU Gallatin College classes.

Enrollment is limited. To register or for a schedule and more information, go to MSU Extended University's professional development course catalog at: http://eu.montana.edu/profdev or call (406) 994-6683.
