Become a valued member of the healthcare team! You'll learn to obtain and handle blood specimens correctly, how to perform electrocardiography (EKG), and develop an understanding of the basic anatomy and electrophysiology of the cardiac system. While taking blood and monitoring the heart are very different job tasks, many healthcare institutions combine them and look for qualified candidates with both skill sets. Both phlebotomy and EKG technicians also explain procedures and gather medical history information.
