Jonathan Pagaduan worked in manufacturing, but knew he wanted more. He discovered medical imaging and found his calling. He continued his education with us, and graduated with a bachelor of science in radiologic sciences. Here is his story.
“Formerly, I worked as a quality manager in manufacturing but realized that the job was neither rewarding nor fulfilling. So, I began volunteering at a local hospital as a transporter, which is how I discovered the world of medical imaging. I chose Pima Medical because I could start immediately. My experience as a student was tough! As a student, you have to make many adjustments and sometimes you have to lose in order to gain. My instructors were hard on me, but I know now that I am a much better technologist because of it.
After graduation, I applied everywhere and contacted everyone I knew in the business. I was hired at Boulder Hospital. Almost a year later, I was hired at Littleton Hospital where I have been expanding my experience. My future goal is to move into management. I recently completed Pima Medical’s Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Sciences. It's been a good experience. I thought I might feel isolated learning online and on my own, but I found I was always in contact with my instructors. A big piece of online learning is time management. If I can do it, others definitely can.
Pima Medical has provided me a great education and it's given me an opportunity for further advancement. My belief is that the combination of education and advancement leads you to a better place.”
Pima Medical’s Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Sciences degree is ideal for individuals who are looking to advance their existing careers as radiologic technologists. A radiologic technologist, or radiographer (often erroneously referred to as an X-ray technician), performs diagnostic medical imaging examinations.
