Accredited Training Academy
Global Clinical & Viral Laboratory has an accredited training academy specialising in the field of Medical Technicians in the categories of Phlebotomy and Clinical Pathology. We have passionate, experienced training facilitators and state of the art equipment and resources that would develop and equip you to excel in this field of study. Phlebotomy involves but is not limited to the collection of blood and non blood specimens that is required for patient diagnosis, monitoring or treatment. Phlebotomy and blood collection has become a demanded skill.
As the different strains of micro-organisms evolve and become more attacking to the immune system, people are now victims to continuous treatment and healthcare. A medical physician is unable to rely on treating a patient just from the clinical information gained during an examination but relies on pathology results and reports to either diagnose treat or monitor patients therapeutically.
This dependency from the physician as well as the alarming epidemics that co-exist within our society has escalated the need for phlebotomy. Furthermore, as many individuals commit to financial planning, insurance organizations require blood tests to ensure the risk of their client before selling a product. The need also became apparent in occupational health care, where biological monitoring are conducted on employees that are exposed to potential harm or risk to their healthcare during employment. Medical research companies have also increased their sample collection as the growing need for research is required.
We look forward to growing you professionally in this field of practice.
