Labcorp Site Manager
December 4, 2018
Ms. Komal Patel, a LabCorp site manager, visited the AIMS Education Edison Center on Tuesday, December 4th to provide a guest lecture to students currently taking the phlebotomy course. During the lecture she discussed the procedure for internships at LabCorp as well as LabCorp’s expectations for their interns. She also reviewed what students can expect during their internships.
The session was very interactive as the students in attendance had some great questions. Ms. Patel ended the lecture with a hands-on demonstration in the medical lab. She went over different techniques for drawing blood, and gave helpful tips for switching tubes and finding difficult veins. Before the lecture concluded, students were given the opportunity to perform blood draws under the supervision of Ms. Patel. She observed the students and provided valuable feedback regarding best practices.
