A Pathology Collector plays a vital role in healthcare, so if you’re seeking an exciting, hands-on, results-driven career in the medical industry, becoming a student of Pathology may be an excellent move for you. 

What does the role of a Pathology Collector involve?

A Pathology Collector is also known as a phlebotomist, and they collect samples for testing, such as blood, urine, or saliva. You will work in a hospital or collection centre as a pathology collector. You may need to travel to the homes of those who are housebound.

Often, the typical pathology student is returning to work after a career break and is seeking a career change. Adept Training teaches current health or medical students who have decided to focus their efforts on this aspect of healthcare.
