Timing was everything for this Medical Assistant Graduate

They say timing is everything, and for Briana Boyd this is true. Hearing a commercial for Pima Medical while she was driving set Boyd’s dream of a healthcare career into motion.

“I first heard about Pima Medical one day while riding in my car listening to Pandora. I had always envisioned myself working in the medical field, so I followed the encouragement of the commercial and enrolled in the nine-month Medical Assistant (MA) program.

My experience at Pima Medical was really exciting. Probably the biggest obstacles I faced during the MA program were learning mathematics and manual blood pressure. However, I had wonderful instructors who helped and encouraged me, enabling me to be successful. I feel like my clinical course with Ms. Jacobs was what really prepared me for the field and truly made me the Medical Assistant I am today.

I was placed at Premier Pediatrics of Houston for my externship where I was able to show the skills I had learned, resulting in my being offered an MA position upon completion of my clinical hours. Since then, I have moved to a new MA position at CHU Baylor St. Luke’s Health. I haven’t started going back to school just yet, but I do plan to further my education.

I recommend Pima Medical Institute to others every chance I get. Because of them, I have a career in the medical field and my life has truly changed.
