Success Is Within Reach

“My experience as a student with Pima Medical was incredibly positive. My instructor clarified the content in ways that my colleagues and I could understand. She was very good at citing something that we just learned about in real-world application so it didn’t seem so abstract. I really appreciated the matching process to externship sites. I was looking for a hospital setting and Pima Medical found me an externship at Banner University Medical Center where I practiced interacting with patients and learned so much.”
