Where Our Alumni Work

“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 to students individually. I would recommend Bay Area Medical Academy to anyone interested in breaking into healthcare.”

Nicholas L., BAMA Graduate

“I lost my business and could not find a job for a long time. I was hopeless until I found out about the free funding for the education provided by Bay Area Medical Academy. I felt very fortunate to have attended the Medical Assistant program for eight months and to be completing my classroom training next week!”

Mahsa G., BAMA Graduate

“Suddenly, I had two great job offers, and I needed to decide if I wanted to work as a medical assistant for the City of San Francisco Public Health Department, or as a lab assistant for Stanford Health Care. I couldn’t believe it! And what made me feel great was that they appreciated my language skills. They valued that I speak Cantonese, and I also speak Mandarin. And now, my English is getting better! After a week of deliberating, I decided to take the exciting opportunity at Stanford, one of the world’s preeminent medical research centers and regional healthcare providers. I make twice as much as I did before in retail. And it’s very rewarding since I know my work helps the doctors diagnose the patients and I am helping people.”

Accreditation and Certifications

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. It’s not easy to become or remain an accredited institution. The rules and regulations are strict, precise and designed to protect students. Here are some of the benefits:

  • A reliable indicator of quality

  • Approved program of study

  • Qualified instructors

  • Recognition by employers nationwide

What our graduates say

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.
