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!

I really appreciated the opportunity to practice phlebotomy on other students, and let them practice on me. Since I graduated BAMA, I’ve been working as a Lab Tech/Phlebotomist at the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. And in January 2017, I started nursing school at the University of San Francisco. My phlebotomy experience has definitely prepared me for my nursing career.Adam Zeboski, Phlebotomy Technician Graduate
I’m so happy right now — LabCorp hired me as a phlebotomist. Thank you very much for all your help. Career Services is awesome.Jovita O., 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
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
What I liked most about the medical assisting program is the hands-on learning. Mrs. Earby made it fun, and she told us about her real-life experience working as a medical assistant. I always looked forward to going to class. BAMA helped me reach my goal, and shaped me to be the best medical assistant I could be. I’m now an medical assistant at San Francisco Critical Care Medical Group.Suliana A. Feiloakitau, Medical Assisting Graduate
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
The knowledge and skills I learned at Bay Area Medical Academy have helped me tremendously with furthering my career. I obtained a position immediately upon completing the course. The staff was patient and helpful. The instructor was extremely knowledgeable and was able to devote a lot of time with students individually. I would recommend Bay Area Medical Academy to anyone interested in breaking into healthcare.Nicholas L., BAMA Graduate
I was going into my second year as an unemployed CNA who couldn’t find time to complete continued education hours. I was working temporary jobs that simply didn’t bring in enough income. Bay Area Medical Academy has given me the opportunity to move up in the medical field with the CPT-1 and EKG certificate, which I had a long-time desire in. This has given me a stable job with good benefits. I gained much self-confidence and experience. Thank you!Lynette P., BAMA Graduate
