Pima Medical Institute - Tucson Reviews
Graduated PMI Medical Assisting program 2015 w/ honors. MA instructors were always knowledgeable. However, went back to PMI for the nursing program in 2018 very negative experience. Some nursing instructors seemed underprepared and some staff was very rude unprofessional including the director. If you fail by one point they terminate you and make you try again in a year “maybe” while charging you a ton of money right after. A school that prides itself in compassion should work with students they chose to protect help them achieve their goals right? Many amazing smart students w/potential are terminated in sem1 and after due to lack of teaching or communication and are left with only more debt no diploma and crushed hopes dreams. I recommend grant campus but not swan (nursing) campus unless you are ready for a lot of stress, drama, disappointment.
I enjoyed learning Pima Medical Institute, professional instructors, excellent resources, honest staff. safety environment
I enjoy being at PMI, It is a great environment and I love the teachers by far they are the best I have been taught by. They are very informative, and I love the type of people and so many different cultures that I see within the school grounds.
I love PMI! Amazing staff and the Respiratory program is just what I needed to begin my career in the medical field, I highly recommend this school.
medical field is not for everyone but for those that have the nerves of steal. Medicine can bring many positive learning experiences with a rewarding feeling of endearment that you made an impact in someone's life.
Amazing school, fast-pace but great education. Teachers and staff are always available to help. Equipment is provided and they provide as much hands on training as possible. The only thing I would like to see change is more parking spaces that's all.
It is a very good learning environment, the teachers are very helpful and friendly. They take their time to teach you and always offer help to those who need it.
I love the class sizes; it's very personable. The teachers actually worked or are still working in the fields they teach.
Although I have not started classes at PMI-Tucson yet, I am beyond pleased with the institution! Everyone I have talked to has been so friendly and helpful. They were very fast to respond to my interest email and were quick to get me an appointment with an advisor to discuss the program and initiate the testing process for entry into the program.
40+ years ago, in the sleepy desert town of Tucson, AZ- my hometown- Pima Medical Institute opened their first campus. 10+ years later, my mom walked through their doors determined to become a college graduate and medical professional....and succeeded. 30 years later my mom is an accomplished Director of Staffing for a recruiting agency, specializing in national healthcare recruiting. In my 21 years, after a couple years in community college prerequisites, fitness sciences, nutrition courses, personal training and customer service occupations,combined with my grandfather's quadruple bypass surgery and health issues of family and clients, I realized my excitement was healthcare. From the minute I walked into the Administration building, the environment, campus and upbeat positive vibe and energy was as welcoming as my mom had described it from 30 years ago! I knew instantly Respiratory Therapy was for me. I am so excited to start classes this fall.
My instructors are all very helpful and intelligent nurses with years of experience. The campus is very secure and clean. I like the student to teacher ratio, because the instructors actually know you by name.
The school has a job placement program and strives for your success. They also help with externship placement
The maximum number of people allowed in the RT program is 30 and then the group is split into different classes, so you are always sure to get one-on-one learning experiences and this also makes it easier for the teachers to address individual student concerns.
I love Pima Medical Institute Tucson campus! The instructors are amazing they are always willing to help you and the make all lectures and competencies as fun and educating as possible. The one thing that does bother me a little is I am a part time student I also work 6 to 7 days a week and some instructors tell me its "okay, cause I work a lot" when I don't do as well as others in my class on something and its just offensive I still get high grades and do well. But I do have responsibilities outside of school and I just feel as though the instructors forget that sometimes, because there main goal is for us to do well and become the best RT's for a patients. PMI is an amazing school with a lot of amazing people and if you do attend school there school is a main property.
A very convenient experience, they are flexible to pick the hours of the day that you chose to come to school.
Most of the online courses were tests that helped us understand the lectures more. The program's they used very tech friendly and we're very helpful because they had many features that will help any learning style understand and learn
At this school many student return to future their careers in the medical field. The schpolicy is exceptional at helping alumni and that's just why many students choosee to return to this school. They help with job placement for any department in the medical field
