One of the biggest challenges to new graduates in any field is getting The First Job. It becomes a frustrating cycle of not having enough experience for the position, then not getting any experience because no one will give them a job.
Bay Area Medical Academy is committed to making sure each student graduates with enough experience and training to make them confident and sought-after employees. We work closely with many local employers who value education and appreciate the chance to give back.
Currently, BAMA is placing students for clinical externships at:
San Francisco General Hospital
California Pacific Medical Center
SF City Clinic
San Mateo County General Hospital
Palo Alto Medical Foundation
…and many other hospitals and clinical labs!
Top employers often screen candidates for externship placement through a rigorous evaluation and interview process similar to their hiring processes. They select the students with the highest class rankings, top scores on certification exams, and outstanding practical skills. Performance in class (grades, attendance, lab skills evaluations) directly impacts chances of being placed with a top employer.
Everyone at BAMA is here to help you succeed and will work hard with you to reach the level of knowledge and expertise to transform your life.

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
