Pharmacy Technician graduate, Sabrina Armijo.
 


Sabrina was ready for something new and a career that she would love. Her mom completed the Medical Assistant program at Pima Medical Institute many years prior and Sabrina always had an interest in healthcare.
 
She went on to graduate from the Pharmacy Technician program and even received two job offers following graduation. Learn about her journey from her story below.
 
“After working for a time as a Metropolitan Transit System bus operator, I realized I couldn’t do it my whole life. After my daughter was born, I decided to pursue a career. My mom had completed the Medical Assistant program at Pima Medical Institute years earlier and I have always had an interest in the medical field. So, I went to Pima Medical, heard about their program offerings and the Pharmacy Technician program piqued my interest and I enrolled. 
 
I loved the program. Everyone talked about pharmacy math being hard, but it just stuck with me and I didn’t find it difficult. My classmates were wonderful and I made great friends. Pima Medical’s externship program gave me experience in multiple settings. I enjoyed both, but learned that I definitely preferred the fast-paced setting of the hospital over the retail site. 
 
After graduation I ended up with two job offers. I chose a position at Scripps Mercy Hospital since it offered both full time and benefits, which I needed to provide for my little girl. I’ve since been promoted to a Technician II position and I just love my job and my new career! I love the environment, my co-workers and the busyness; there’s never a dull moment and always work to be done. 
 
I would definitely recommend Pima Medical Institute. I had a great experience and the best instructor. The opportunities for my future are endless; I’ve considered becoming a buyer, a narcotics specialist, a system analyst or even becoming a pharmacist.”
 
A change can be your opportunity to start a healthcare career just like Sabrina. Let us help you get started.
