Lab Assistant Jobs

If you are unsure of what type of job you would work best in, then you might want to consider getting a job working as a lab assistant. It is a great job for people who have great communication skills and interpersonal skills, and for people who want to work in an environment where they are helping people, or need some medical experience. Getting a job in phlebotomy would mean that you would be able to work in a hospital or a clinic with a doctor and help with things such as drawing blood from patients for blood tests.

A job as a medical lab assistant would require you to be okay and comfortable with the work done. For example you would need to be okay touching people. The job will require you to touch people’s arms, swab them, and insert needs in them. You would also need to be comfortable handling biological material, such as blood, in containers. And finally, you would need to be comfortable and good in situations where a patient might be acting obnoxious, difficult, or nervous when they need you to draw their blood. Quite a lot of children come through getting their first blood tests and are quite often very nervous getting that done.

Going to a phlebotomist school is the best way to get the training and the certification you need to work as a lab assistant. This is a great job for medical students who need to work under a doctor before moving on in their studies. It is also a pretty good job for any person just looking to have some work and needing a well paying and respectable job. If you just need some basic training then you can get through the modules within a few weeks and join a clinic.
