President's Message

The COVID-19 crisis has affected every aspect of our lives. We're grateful that our students remain committed to healthcare career aspirations. That decision has become more significant now than ever before in our lifetimes.
 
As campuses slowly begin the process of returning to on-campus learning, I want to emphasize to everyone that the safety of our students, faculty and staff is a top concern.  We are committed to the success of our students and want to support their ability to gain the skills necessary to begin a rewarding career in healthcare – with safety at the forefront. 

I realize none of this is easy, and want to thank all students, faculty and staff for their hard work, ability to pivot and dedication and determination.

We will get through this together.

Sincerely,
Fred Freedman
President and CEO
Pima Medical Institute
