Icela started her healthcare career as a Medical Assistant and continued her growth through online education. Learn how it all started from a life-changing experience. Her story is below.
 
“I am a cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with stage three ovarian cancer when I was 24 years old. Going through that experience made me decide to go into the medical field. I found Pima Medical Institute, enrolled in their Medical Assistant (MA) program and I loved it! I had no problem finding a job and worked as an MA for a time before returning to Pima Medical’s Radiography program. Once I started, I knew I had found my career. After all, we are the eyes of the doctors and we help diagnose patients. This is very important to me, especially after having had cancer.
 
My bachelor’s degree has increased my value. Education is important and employers notice. After a time working in the X-ray field, I became a PAC (Patient Archive Communication System) administrator caring for patients’ images and I really enjoyed it. But, I wanted more so I enrolled in Pima Medical’s online Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Sciences (BSRS) program. I had a child and was working full time so it wasn’t easy, but they provided all the tools and resources I needed and the instructors always seemed to be available for help. It was a challenging program, but so rewarding and I can honestly say, my bachelor’s degree has increased my value. Education is important and employers notice. My next goal is the Master of Science in Organizational Leadership.
 
Having completed all three programs at Pima Medical, I am confident that I am a highly skilled employee. Having been a patient myself, I know that I provide REALLY good patient care and that is important to me and the very reason I chose the medical field. Thank you Pima Medical!”
 
Icela built her career with the support from Pima Medical and you can too. Why wait? You can get started today.
