Women are 50.3% of the population of California. We are key drivers of industry and innovation, leaders, and vital participants in essential workforce industries. That’s why we need to continue supporting – and increasing – investments in women across the state. But women face significant challenges, even after decades of progress, to their economic well-being. Women are essential to California’s globally competitive economy – our success is California’s success! Thanks to a California Commission of the Status of Women and Girls Grant, Bay Area Medical Academy will be investing in women through the 2023/2024 Women’s Recovery Response Grant because we all do better together. If you would like to receive funding for our Medical Assisting Program through this grant, please book a phone call to speak with us here. We’d love to hear from you!

BAMA was a wonderful school to work with. Very easy process to register and sign up for courses. I completed the weekend phlebotomy course at the San Francisco campus. The course was fantastic, and what I loved most about it was the knowledge my instructor had. Never did I feel nervous that I wouldn’t be able to complete the course work asked of me. My instructor was very confident in his skills which led me to have the same confidence. Attending BAMA and taking the weekend course, I was fully prepared to dive into the world of phlebotomy.Kiley Munoz, Phlebotomy Technician Graduate
Bay Area Medical Academy helped me set up the externship and processed all the paperwork needed for obtaining certifications and licenses. The school also has a great career counselor, who is very supportive and constantly helps new graduates with their resumes. Thanks to her, I was able to setup interviews with employers and obtained a job with one of the job referrals.Steven T., BAMA Graduate
I liked the hands-on training best. The training in class was set up to give you the experience of working in a doctor’s office. You’re trained to take vitals and give injections, among other things.Joan Garchitorena, Medical Assisting Graduate
I have good news to report. I’m now employed at Quest Diagnostics and IMS Paramed. I couldn’t have done it without Career Services and the employer spotlights you host. Thank you.Katherine L., Phlebotomy Technician Graduate

The MA students have always been well trained by Bay Area Medical Academy (BAMA). On a regular basis when there had been an opening at Ward 86 – Positive Health Program, we hire a former student from BAMA. Medical Assistants from BAMA have proven to be well prepared, fast learners, and very motivated in working at Ward 86.Roland Zepf ACRN, Clinic Manager, San Francisco Hospital
BAMA’s a great choice. You graduate a Nationally-Certified Medical Assistant. You are a Nationally-Certified Phlebotomist. You’re a Certified EKG Technician, and they will connect you to take the State board exam. Go to BAMA. You have the opportunity to just grow and move up and just keep going.Davina C., BAMA Medical Assisting Graduate
