Phlebotomy is an exciting and rewarding career choice, but working in that particular field is not the only option you have with a phlebotomy qualification. IN this article, we’ll be looking at what other career paths you can take in the medical field with your phlebotomy qualification as a starting point.
For obvious reasons, the laboratory technician role is already heavily associated with that of the phlebotomist. Since both roles act as essentially the left and right hands of medical diagnosis, the path from phlebotomist to laboratory technician is an obvious sideways set in a healthcare career.
Transitioning from phlebotomist to lab technician does mean some retraining as the lab technician role requires a greater focus on scientific methods. However, the good news is that experience of handling blood, and phlebotomy remains essential to the position.
Another role where phlebotomy skills remain essential, training as a registered nurse, is a career path that many phlebotomists choose to take. As with becoming a lab technician, moving from phlebotomist to nurse will require a period of retraining.
However, once this retraining has been completed, you’ll get the benefits of an increased salary. At the same time, your experience of already working in the medical field will make it easier to find jobs.
With the U.S healthcare sector trending heavily towards the digital, the role of the medical biller and coder is in hugely high demand. Because of this, healthcare workers from across the medical spectrum are retraining as medical billers and coders.
Compared to becoming a lab technician or nurse, the retraining period is relatively short. Joining our NCC Medical Billing and Coding School means you can graduate as a fully qualified medical biller and coder in as little as nine months.
If you really want to advance your career in the medical field, then the most obvious path is attending medical school and qualifying as a doctor. Compared to the other options on this list, this a long and expensive road. However, even if you phlebotomy skills won’t directly contribute to becoming a doctor, they might help you after you graduate.
Working in the healthcare sector means working as part of a team, and the connections you build as a phlebotomist might be what gets you your dream job once your graduate medical school.
At Northwest Career College, we pride ourselves on providing one of the premier Phlebotomy Schools in Las Vegas. Our phlebotomy students have an 89% national exam pass rate, and you can graduate in as little as three months.
Our established, seasoned instructors will take you through every aspect of Phlebotomy and Northwest offers day, afternoon and night classes to accommodate your busy Las Vegas work and family schedule.
