Serving the Colorado Springs community since 2002, the new campus features an expanded career services area, larger classrooms and a common space for studying. It also includes a larger Dental Assistant lab and provides Veterinary Assistant and Veterinary Technician students with an integrated campus experience by having their classes on campus.

“This new campus will help us further advance our mission of improving the quality of people’s lives by providing the best value in medical career education,” said Tara Dailey, Colorado Springs Campus Director.

According to the Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce, two out of the top ten most in-demand occupations in El Paso County are in the healthcare services industry and Pima Medical Institute plays a key role in providing the training to help supply the workforce for the hospitals and healthcare facilitates in the Colorado Springs community.

“We take our responsibility of educating and preparing students for employment very seriously,” said Fred Freedman, Pima Medical Institute President and CEO.  Freedman added, “It’s not just the ability to get a job, it’s the ability to keep a job and grow a career from that point forward. With this in mind, soft skills training is as much a part of our program as medical skills.”
