Why Pima Medical Institute
Why choose Pima Medical Institute for your healthcare education?
Since we first opened our doors in Tucson, Arizona back in 1972, Pima Medical Institute has been focused on the mission to improve the quality of people’s lives by providing the best value in medical career education. Celebrating our 50-year anniversary in 2022, we’ve remained focused on a student-centered approach to education. Our experienced faculty and staff work tirelessly to provide for our students, creating a qualified generation of healthcare employees who make immediate impact in the communities they serve.
Clinical externships are one of the most exciting and vital experiences at Pima Medical. For most students, a clinical externship is required for graduation and will very closely mirror what to expect in a chosen career field. Students will be directly mentored by professionals and be provided support from our career services team throughout the process. It’s a great opportunity to show off all the skills learned and a great first step toward building the professional foundation needed to land a job or seek a higher degree.
