I have been doing phlebotomy for 1 and 1/2 years and I still love it. Each person is a new challenge. You meet all different kinds of peple from brand new babies to the old. Sometimes it is hard when you have cancer patients (ecspecially when they are kids) and you have the ones that have needle phobia. Like I said, everyone is different but that is the great thing. You not only learn more about your job but also about other people. If you live in a small town like I do, you get to know everyone that comes in for routine work. It is not a hard job if you know what you are doing. The pay is not all that great unless you work for a really big hospital. It might also help with the pay part if you are sertified. But like I said, it can be rewarding sometimes.
med student - it's okay. doesn't require much training at all. the training lasted a few months in the middle of my lab schooling. it's the most basic job of lab techs. not difficult at all. the pay isn't all that great, but you can work up to being supervisor.
Whoo, that's kind of scary, can't spell phlebotomy, and you're a THIRD year med student? And you think you're gonna' stick that where?.........
