According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for Patient Service Technicians, Phlebotomists and Medical Lab Assistants in the U.S. is expected to grow by more than 25% between 2014 and 2022. That’s much faster than the average for all occupations and will account for 2,820 jobs in Michigan alone during that time frame.* Our graduates are helping to meet this need and have recently been hired by area healthcare employers at McLaren Hospital, Progressive Residential Services and Arbor Manor Rehabilitation & Nursing Center.
