BAMA Students are Sought-After Employees

Bay Area Medical Academy provides Healthcare Workforce Education in the Bay Area. We are a talent supplier to medical facilities in the area that hire healthcare graduates and maintain strong ties with the medical community that we serve. Many employers come to BAMA to talk to our students about the types of candidates they are looking for as well as to meet and interview our students in person.

We provide value-added services in the form of:

Externship Placements

Our holistic training model ensures that students receive valuable clinical experience via externships at medical facilities throughout the Bay Area. Commitment lengths vary depending upon program. Our students prepare for direct patient interaction through extensive lab training and are evaluated several times before qualifying for externship placement. The quality of our training is shown in the large number of students employed at externship facilities. In effect, externships through Bay Area Medical Academy act as “in-house interviews” where employers can evaluate the skills of candidates in a real world setting.

We’re very pleased with the students from BAMA that we’ve placed in our pharmacies for their externships. They are well-prepared and possess a strong work ethic. We have hired several BAMA students as a result of their performance during their externships. We look forward to continuing our partnership with BAMA.

Employer On Campus Events

Many employers come to BAMA to meet and interview graduates and current students as well as to offer information about jobs at their medical facilities. Employer Events allow employers to meet one-on-one with qualified candidates who are pre-screened according to criteria provided by the employer. These informal presentations enable BAMA graduates and students to speak directly with employers about the scope and demands of jobs, as well as relevant skills and attributes.
