Georgia CTSA offers Phlebotomy Training through the Georgia CTSA Clinical Research Centers (GCRCs)

Phlebotomy 101 is an introductory training to venipuncture. The two-day classroom and clinical, hands-on training teaches venipuncture. The course is offered to research coordinators quarterly. 

The Phlebotomy 101 training was last held on December 13-14, 2018 led by GCRCs nurses Vani Manoharan, RN, DeBorah Rowser, RN, and Rebecca Thomas, RN. The course, now offered to Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) and University of Georgia (UGA) faculty/staff/students, was attended by three MSM students: Sterling Brown, Shabria Amos, and Olusola Gbinigie. When asked about the training, Brown stated, “It was an amazing and informative experience.”

The next phlebotomy training will be held on March 21-22, 2019.
