Effective April 9, 2003, all persons performing phlebotomy who are not California-licensed physicians, nurses, clinical lab scientists, or other licensed professionals whose scope of practice does not include phlebotomy must be certified as a phlebotomist before they can draw blood. Certified medical assistants can draw blood in a physician’s office.
