Pima Medical Institute

I am one of the "older" people looking for a new career and am thinking of enrolling at Pima Medical Institute in Mesa, AZ. Does anyone know anything about their reputation?

Re: Pima Medical Institute

Hi Robin -

I went to the Pima in Mesa and graduated from the MA program in 2004. I had some really great teachers and some not so great. But I've also had that experience in the community college system. Overall, I think Pima is a good school and I almost wish I had gone there for my RT schooling as well.

Make sure you check out all your options - the community college system does offer an MA certificate and it would be less expensive than going through Pima. You might want to look at this:
