About Us

Bay Area Medical Academy Transforms Lives

Bay Area Medical Academy transforms lives by providing technical education and training for long-term employment in the healthcare field.

We Are a Social Enterprise

We strive for a world where everyone is given equal opportunities to succeed and believe that education is the best way to achieve this. However, in today’s economy, the four year degree is becoming increasingly obsolete. Now, those with technical skills and problem-solving abilities are more able than ever to advance their lives and careers. We want to level the playing field.

Our Mission

Bay Area Medical Academy transforms people's lives through market-relevant career training created in partnership with employers. We provide job-oriented training in high-growth, high-demand areas of the health care field, therefore fulfilling the workforce needs of the medical facilities in the Bay Area. We prepare individuals from different socio-economic, cultural and educational backgrounds for successful, long-term careers in the field.

Bay Area Medical Academy’s goal is to serve its students and the medical community through excellent academic instruction and skills-training. We maintain a student-centered philosophy and utilize both traditional and innovative means to train our students.

Bay Area Medical Academy is committed to the success of its students. This commitment begins with providing quality education through experienced teaching staff and state-of-the-art training equipment and learning aids.

We Are a Smaller School

We provide a nurturing learning environment where every student receives personalized attention. We are a smaller school and that is what makes us better. For example, our staff, instructors, and administrators know every student by their first name. We structure our classes to ensure hands-on learning and provide additional coaching and lab practice hours for students in need.

We not only prepare our students for successful entry into the medical field but also develop a lasting bond with each throughout their careers.

We Take Pride In Our Instructors

We take pride in the quality of our instructors. Our courses are taught by a knowledgeable staff of registered nurses, clinical laboratory technicians and other healthcare professionals, each with more than twenty years of experience.
