Bay Area Medical Academy is the premier talent pool for medical facilities in the Bay Area. As the student, you are at the center of our model of service. Our instructors, talent coaches, counselors and employers become your partners on the path to successful entry into the healthcare workforce.
Every student is unique and comes to us with a different level of preparedness as well as specific obstacles. However, all come to BAMA with the goal to obtain the skills needed to start a career in health care (Medical Assisting Program, Pharmacy Technician) or to move up the career ladder by taking one of our continuing education programs (Phlebotomy, EKG Technician, CPR).
