Our San Francisco location holds a special place in our hearts, marking the beginning of Bay Area Medical Academy’s journey. Founded as a community initiative in 2004 by Simonida Cvejic, our first location was established in response to the pressing demand for healthcare professionals within the local community. This founding philosophy remains at the heart of our institution. We turn out competent, confident medical assistants who provide patients in San Francisco with compassionate, expert care.

Why Accreditation Is Important

When you attend an accredited institution, you are attending a school that has undergone a rigorous process that evaluates educational quality.

  • A reliable indicator of quality

  • Approved program of study

  • Qualified instructors

  • Recognition by employers nationwide

What our graduates say

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.
