I am very interested in becoming a Phlebologist which specialize in veins. I'm looking to eventually practice Sclerotheraphy, so I would like to know the steps I should take to reach my goal. I have just completed and passed my exam to become a Certified Phlebotomist (CPT1) in the state of California. So any guidance or advice is appreciated. Thanks!

Yes you would need to go to med school and become an MD first.Then you would have to complete the necessary pre med classes, 4 years of med school and then a residency.Sclerotherapy is performed by doctors.

Well I did some research and found that not just Physicians can train to become a phlebologist. This is what I found:
Who may attend phlebological training?
Physicians (M.D. / D.O.), Nurses, Physician Assistants, FKT
I also read somewhere that "Beauty Therapist" can also train to become a phlebologist.
So if anyone know the steps I appreciate your input.
