Pima Medical Institute – Why Work With Us?


History and Philosophy

At Pima Medical Institute, we want you to succeed in the classroom and in your career. We are dedicated to providing you with quality education and hands-on experiences that help you become the type of medical professional who meets the expectations of today’s employers. 

Pima Medical Institute started changing lives more than 40 years ago. In 1972, Richard Luebke Sr. and his wife JoAnn brought to life their dream of providing students with a quality medical career education. They opened their first campus in Tucson, Ariz., preparing students to become nursing assistants. As the years passed, the Luebkes introduced more programs and opened additional campus locations to meet the country’s growing demand for quality health care professionals.

Today, the legacy of our family owned school continues. Richard Luebke Jr. and Mark Luebke lead the college their father founded more than four decades ago. We continue to be guided by the belief that our success as a school is measured by the success of our students. 

Operating under this philosophy, Pima Medical Institute has become a trusted provider of quality education in the western United States. Our students are respected as some of the most qualified professionals in their fields, and are often employed at preferred hospitals, clinics and facilities in their communities.

Each year, thousands of students like you find success at Pima Medical Institute and reach their career goals. 

Physical therapist assistant students in Mesa had some fun with Taylor Swift's "Shake it Off". The students recreated the song, featuring lyrics about the body's muscle groups, and danced to the "cover song”

"The only real measuring stick of a school's success... the achievement of its students"

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pima Medical Institute (Renton, WA) in June 2020.


    The day after applying for the position, I received a call and had a short phone interview. Then I had an 30 minute online, Zoom interview with the Career Services Coordinator. Then I had an on-site interview where I got a quick tour of the campus, got to meet a few people, and had the interview with the coordinator and the Campus Director. Afterwards, I had a final Zoom 30 minute interview with the coordinator, another advisor, and the Associate Campus Director. I did not get the offer but everyone was very nice and pleasant!
