Directed Clinical Practice Requirement

Students accepted into the Phlebotomy Training Program are required to successfully complete Directed Clinical Practice; a clinically-based course held in health care facilities. The facilities may require background checks, including fingerprinting and drug screening as a condition of placement at the clinic. Refusal to submit to a background check, or failure to meet clearance criteria established by the health care facility, may prevent placement in the Directed Clinical Practice and thus, prevent successful completion of the program. Health care facilities also require adherence to strict standards of conduct. Facilities may refuse educational access to any person who does not adhere to the facility’s standard of safety, health and ethical behavior. This may be cause for removal from the program.
