Here at Pima Medical Institute we love to spotlight our alumni, and this week we are highlighting Chula Vista Radiography graduate Jeremy Byrd. The Radiology Manager at Paradise Valley Hospital, Jeremy credits his Pima Medical Institute education with preparing him for his role.
Here’s Jeremy’s story, in his own words.
I became intrigued with the field of radiology when I had an experience with a broken bone that exposed me to the profession. Pima Medical Institute was one of several schools I researched. Since I was in the process of changing careers, I appreciated that with Pima Medical I could start soon and get a job quickly.
The program was challenging. Within several months we were in the field four days a week with so much hands-on training, we could barely keep our heads above water. However, it wasn’t long before all we had learned kicked in. Having the opportunity to work at four different sites was a huge benefit. This meant there were multiple sites where I knew people and where I was known.
Currently, I am the Manager of Radiology at Paradise Valley Hospital. Pima Medical set the foundation and prepared me to move into a management position. They helped me get ready and they never let me down along the way.
