This Two-Time Pima Medical Graduate Started as an Undecided Community College Student Before Finding her Calling

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

Alexis Manuszak completed the Medical Assistant certificate program at our San Antonio campus and the Health Care Administration associate degree through our Online campus. She started her schooling in community college, but wasn’t happy. Unsure of her path, she discovered Pima Medical and the rest, as they say, is history.  She is now a proud two-time graduate of our trusted and respected medical career college.

Her story is a testament to the idea that you do not have to have a clear path when you get started- you just have to find something you love and things will work out. Here is her story.

I started college at 17, attending a community college for a while, but it just wasn’t the path I was looking for. After researching online for a short program in the medical field, I found Pima Medical Institute. When the advisor described the role of a Medical Assistant (MA), I felt a spark and realized this program was for me.

My experience at the school was great. I had a fantastic teacher named Mrs. Bridgeman who was encouraging and made learning fun. She not only taught us the necessary curriculum information we needed to know as an MA, she shared her own work experiences which was both helpful and fascinating to us. She and the other instructors helped me to be where I am today. The Career Services department was helpful in locating a good job for me with many possibilities and I am still working there today.

I decided to continue my education with Pima Medical and enrolled in its online Health Care Administration (HCA) program. I eventually plan to continue into the bachelor’s program (BSHCA). My future goal is to be a manager of a clinic or even a hospital and my overall life goal is to become a doctor.

I want to say – THANK YOU – to everyone at Pima Medical’s San Antonio Campus. I am a successful medical professional because of all of you!
