We’re Here For You
Not only do we provide high-quality, hands-on medical training and instruction, Pima Medical Institute is also there for you every step of the way. Our Support Services team is always happily standing by to answer your questions, hear your concerns or just be there to talk.
You don’t have to complete this journey alone – that’s why you pick Pima Medical Institute.
We recognize the importance of getting real-world experience. Whether you’re an on-campus or online student, we have designed our programs and courses to include opportunities for you to use what you learn in school and apply it to your future or current career in healthcare.
Many of our on-campus programs feature clinical externships, where students can take their knowledge into the field and expand their skills before graduation – even find a job!
We cultivate strong partnerships and utilize our vast number of community partners in the healthcare industry to find the right clinical externship for you, your career and your goals.
This experience will give you an edge as you enter the workforce. Many times, these externships can directly lead to employment with that organization. At Pima Medical Institute, we care about getting your career going, not just teaching you the ropes.
While our online programs are conducted virtually, students do not miss out on a real-world experience. All online programs take a project-first stance with learning concepts that can be applied in the workplace.
As many of our online degree students are already working in healthcare, these projects usually require students to use their current job as a case study, so their work is immediately relevant to their industry and personal life.
Pima Medical Institute offers many opportunities for continued education with our online bachelor’s and master’s degrees, so students can work in the field they already love and advance their careers at the same time.
