Curriculum for Our Phlebotomy School in San Francisco

A high need for medical professionals was what drove our founder, Simonida Cvejic, to open her first location, Bay Area Medical Academy, in 2004. Before then, California didn’t have standard licenses for phlebotomists. BAMA set the standard, and in 2018, BAMA Institute opened to continue that mission. 

Our phlebotomy technician program includes a 60-hour, in-person, classroom portion, followed by a 40-160-hour clinical externship. It is available on three schedules: 

  • 2-week day intensive class 
  • 5-week weekend class 
  • 3-week evening class

Following course completion, you will be eligible for your California Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT-1) / National Certified Phlebotomy Technician credential

Included in our program is a guaranteed 40-160 hour clinical externship. That will allow you to get the on-the-job training needed to certify and gain top employment. Some of our externship partners include;
