At UMA, you just have to look around to see our culture of putting students and our community first. 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.

    You will enjoy a set schedule, competitive pay with regular increases for tenure & performance. The company has many moving parts. This allows opportunities for lateral or upward motion within the company often. The vibe is upbeat and passionate. This is an employer who cares about the community, its students AND its employees. I have rarely seen a company invest so much in training to ensure you will be successful. I have NEVER seen another employer invest as much in recognition. They truly support and build up their employees. If you apply yourself and enjoy being challenged for a greater purpose you can find a team of people to join in with. We make goals, we meet them and we have fun doing it. UMA is a quickly maturing Non-profit company that has its values in order. They are a leader in the Tampa Bay area and abroad. If you want to be part of something bigger than yourself and you want to go home at night knowing that there was value in the work you did today I encourage you to apply.

    Easy Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ultimate Medical Academy (Tampa, FL) in September 2016.


    I was recruited by a staffing agency, so I first met with a representative from the agency for the first interview. Then, I was scheduled to meet with one of the directors at UMA for a one on one interview. The interview lasted probably about 15 minutes, and was pretty easy. They let you know within a couple of days.
