Phlebotomy technician training at Mayo Clinic
The Phlebotomy Technician Certificate Program at Mayo Clinic offers the best accredited phlebotomy training in Minnesota. You will learn how to collect samples from patients and how to prepare these samples for testing. Through this nine-week program, you will gain the knowledge and skills needed to work in an outpatient clinic setting or an inpatient (hospital) setting.
You can expect:
- A curriculum that includes a blended classroom and online learning schedule, with hands-on lab and clinical experiences completed on campus beginning the second week of the program.
- A focus on real-world knowledge and application where you will draw hundreds of samples from actual patients, preparing you to be a well-rounded and confident phlebotomist.
- The opportunity to begin working in the field quickly with the potential to start a career at Mayo Clinic, where 90 percent of graduates go on to work as phlebotomists.
Our training is focused on developing Mayo Clinic's future workforce — meaning that after graduation, if students are the right candidates and positions are available, many of our graduates go on to work at Mayo Clinic directly out of training. However, you’ll be fully prepared for your first day on the job, wherever that may be.

Explore what a phlebotomy technician does
Phlebotomists collect and prepare blood samples from patients for testing and are often the first health care professional the patient meets when they arrive to seek care. This interaction is extremely important, as it sets the stage for what the patient can expect to receive regarding their care at this facility. They work closely with patients, explaining the blood-drawing process and putting patients at ease.
