UCSF in Partnership With Bay Area Medical Academy Presents Free* Medical Assisting With Phlebotomy and EKG Training

The Program

The Medical Assisting with Phlebotomy and EKG Program is intended to provide the entry level student with a solid foundation in clinical and administrative duties to prepare for a successful entry into the medical field.

At the completion of all seven modules, UCSF will provide clinical externship which will be four months (MA Academy).
