From the murals on the walls dedicated to our students, to a blood mobile frequenting the parking lot, UMA strives to give back every day. Feeding America volunteer events, 5K walks for causes like breast cancer, arthritis and Parkinson’s Disease awareness, and Community Supported Agriculture partnerships with local urban farms are just some of our initiatives for social good.

We have a lot of fun too – on any given day you may find us dressed up as pirates for Gasparilla, handing out treats and colorful beads for special occasions, hosting Halloween Costume contests, sharing UMA-exclusive snapchat filters and more.

When you join UMA, you join a culture that believes in teamwork, community giving, supporting our employees and placing students first. With these activities and more, we make sure that culture always comes through.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Ultimate Medical Academy.


    It was fun. Conference setting and you were able to be yourself and not nervous! I was very thankful on how the process went. Being that I have not been in that type of setting for over 17 years at the time it was an easy approach and I was not intimidated at all.
