Students will practice venipunctures on a mechanical arm until competent.  Once competency is established, students will perform supervised venipunctures on clinical laboratory patients.  Clinical sites include: CMC Northeast, Novant Health Rowan Medical Center, the VA Medical Center, Lake Norman Regional Medical Center, and Rowan Family Physicians.

Upon successful program completion, students will be eligible to sit for the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP) national certification exam.
