Family Ties to Pima Medical Helped this Phoenix Graduate Find a Career he Loves

Follow your passion for a career in healthcare and make a difference.

Arthur Zamora graduated from the Sterile Processing program at our Phoenix campus in 2017. He says his aunt’s encouragement helped him to find a career he loves. Here’s his story.

“I heard about Pima Medical Institute from my aunt who had graduated from the Pharmacy Technician program and recommended I consider attending one of its programs. I ended up choosing the Sterile Processing Technician program because I enjoy working with my hands and I like tools. It just seemed like a natural fit for me.

I had a very positive experience in my program. Working full time and commuting to and from class five days a week was probably my biggest challenge. I appreciated how the instructors took a personal interest in our success. It was a very supportive environment and I felt very well prepared to begin working in my new sterile processing career. The program certainly gave me the skills I needed to hit the ground running and really prove myself. I was hired at Banner Gateway Medical Center in Gilbert where I had completed my externship. As soon as I completed my hours, I received a permanent position as a Sterile Processing Technician. 

Since graduating in 2017, I’ve been steadily climbing the ladder from my start as a technician to my current role as Central Sterile Department Manager at Surgenex, a producer and distributor of the highest quality tissue allografts in the industry. I feel the sky is the limit in terms of my future. I am eagerly moving toward whatever opportunities present themselves.

Pima Medical Institute gave me my start in the medical field and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made!
