Pima Medical Institute is pleased to announce it has hired DeWayne Johnson to lead the school’s new San Marcos, Calif., campus, which is set to welcome students in October.

Johnson has 17 years of experience in the career education field, recently serving as campus president for Westwood College in Los Angeles. It was there he oversaw daily campus operations, worked with employers and community members, helped design and implement programs, managed budgets, staff and faculty.

“Our new campus will thrive under DeWayne’s leadership,” said Pima Medical Institute President and CEO, Fred Freedman. “We’re pleased to be part of the community and we’re looking forward to providing life-changing healthcare educations to the residents of San Marcos so that they may go on to have successful, fulfilling careers.”

Johnson said building a campus “from the ground up” is something he’s always wanted to experience.

“I’m excited to be building the team—hiring the faculty and staff. One of the reasons I wanted to come to Pima Medical was because I’d have the opportunity to start a campus,” he said.

Johnson will oversee several faculty and staff at the new campus, located in North City. Once it is complete, it will be located at 111 Campus Way, San Marcos, CA 92078. 

Students will have the choice of enrolling in several certificate programs, including Dental Assistant, Medical Administrative Assistant, Medical Assistant, Pharmacy Technician, Phlebotomy Technician, and Veterinary Assistant. The campus will also offer an associate degree in Respiratory Therapy, and will likely add more assistant degree healthcare programs in the future. 

“I really like that Pima Medical focuses solely on healthcare. It’s a great industry and career colleges like Pima Medical allow students to get the skills they need for a job or life change. All of us need healthcare professionals,” Johnson said.

While preparing the campus for its opening this fall, Johnson will also be networking with various healthcare businesses in order to build relationships that will benefit Pima Medical students during their externships and after graduation. He’ll also be reaching out to other business in the area to grow partnerships and give back to the community.

The new campus will be surrounded by a multi-use community that offers dining, entertainment, shopping, student housing and outdoor recreation.
