Phlebotomists play an important role on the medical laboratory team by collecting specimens for laboratory testing. With experience, a phlebotomist can be promoted to higher level positions such as phlebotomy supervisor or laboratory assistant. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that the market for Phlebotomists will increase 10-20% over the next ten years.
