Firstly, the student will start their training at either the school’s San Francisco or San Jose campus.
What then follows is a 9-month program that prepares the student for successful entry into the medical field.
Bay Area Medical Academy’s Medical Assisting with Phlebotomy Program consists of three components:
- Administrative skills training
- Clinical skills training
- 200-hour clinical externship
The program is divided into 8 learning units called modules.
The first 7-modules are classroom modules and each module stands alone as a unit of study and is not dependent upon the completion of any previous or subsequent module.
After the first 7-learning units there is a 200-hour clinical externship at a hospital or in a laboratory setting. This residency is a resume booster that provides a student with first-hand experience, improving their skills and abilities.

In today’s healthcare facilities, a Medical Assistant works on the front-line of patient care.
A medical assistant plays a crucial role in providing people with quality healthcare, helping patients feel at ease, and relieving physicians from many clinical and administrative duties.
Medical assisting can also be a great career stepping stone to working in other healthcare positions. For instance, with clinical experience and further training, a medical assistant can become a LVN, a Clinic Nurse, or a Nurse Practitioner.
