President's Message

The COVID-19 crisis is not yet fully behind us, but the last several months have been inspiring as we continue to witness thousands of students join the Pima Medical Institute family committed to a career in healthcare. Interest in healthcare education has never been stronger and demand for graduates remains robust.

While we have returned to on-campus learning in all of our facilities, the safety of our students, faculty and staff remains a top concern. Hands-on learning is key for students to gain the skills necessary to begin a rewarding career and we are committed to providing the best education possible in the safest environment we can.

There has never been a more important time in the healthcare field and we look forward to helping guide the next generation of professionals.

The hard work of our students, faculty and staff remains steadfast.
