Due to COVID-19, hands-on lab on campus will not take place in summer 2020 and fall 2020. Students will be placed in externships once sites start taking students again. At this time they are not taking students. However, students are going out and getting hired and receiving on-the-job training because Phlebotomists and EKG technicians are needed all across the country.

Bunker Hill Community College Division of Workforce and Economic Development is offering two value-added medical certifications, EKG Technician and Phlebotomy Technician. While these programs are intended to add value certifications to a licensed CNA or CNA student, they can be taken independently. We recommend students take EKG + Phlebotomy together to maximize career opportunities. Please contact Jack Chan at jchan@bhcc.edu if you have questions about eligibility or enrollment. This program is TOPS and Masshire approved training.
