Rogue Valley Phlebotomy School
Our mission is to help students learn topnotch phlebotomy skills that will enable them to find fulfilling employment in a lifelong career. Students learn compassion and empathy in caring for patients, which makes their medical experiences easier and less stressful. We emphasize empathy, honesty, respect for the patient, teamwork, and quality in all aspects of the practice of Phlebotomy.

In acknowledgement to the COVID-19 outbreak, we want the public to know that our students and staff safety is our highest priority.
Considering the fact that Phlebotomists are essential workers during this time, their training with RVPS is continuing with social distancing restrictions in place where applicable. RVPS has integrated online education into our traditionally hands-on curriculum, minimizing the need for classroom interaction. We are also abiding by strict health guidelines upon entry of each student and visitor. If you have any questions regarding our state regulations and how they are being implemented, please contact us at (541) 499-6383.

Phlebotomists work in hospitals, clinics, and other medical facilities drawing blood from patients in preparation for medical testing. As a phlebotomist you must be attentive to detail, work well under pressure, have excellent manual dexterity, great communication skills, and really enjoy working with people.
As a phlebotomy technician you are an important member of the clinical laboratory team. New diagnostic techniques, clinical laboratory technology and automated instruments have greatly increased the volume of medical laboratory testing.
