Find Medical Assistant with Phlebotomy training at Bay Area Medical Academy
One of the biggest challenges to new graduates in any field is getting The First Job. It becomes a frustrating cycle of not having enough experience for the position, then not getting any experience because no one will give them a job. That’s why at BAMA Institute, we provide an extensive phlebotomy externship that gives students the experience and connections they need to succeed with their CPT-1 license.
Phlebotomy isn’t a skill that you can develop in a classroom alone. You need practice, practice, and more practice to become a confident phlebotomist. At BAMA Institute, we help you hone your skills through placement at some of the top area healthcare employers. With the skills you learn in our program and the real-world experience you develop as part of your externship, you’re sure to succeed in your new career.
Currently, BAMA Institute is placing students for clinical phlebotomy externships at:
San Francisco General Hospital
California Pacific Medical Center
SF City Clinic
San Mateo County General Hospital
Palo Alto Medical Foundation
…and many other hospitals and clinical labs!
Top employers often screen candidates for phlebotomy externship placement through a rigorous evaluation and interview process similar to their hiring processes. They select the students with the highest class rankings, top scores on certification exams, and outstanding practical skills. Performance in class (grades, attendance, lab skills evaluations) directly impacts your chances of being placed with a top employer.
Everyone at BAMA Institute is here to help you succeed and will work hard with you to reach the level of knowledge and expertise to transform your life.
BAMA Institute is an accredited institution that participates in many workforce development programs, including options through The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), and the Department of Rehabilitation. Even if you don’t qualify for supplemental funding, we offer an affordable 0% interest tuition payment plan to help you get your education and start working as a phlebotomist.
