History and Philosophy

The history of our school is a success story that has its roots in the vision of its founders, a dynamic husband and wife team. In January 1972, Richard Luebke, Sr. and JoAnn Luebke began their dream of offering quality medical career education in Tucson, Arizona. Their dream quickly became a reality, as the demand for affordable training grew.

By January 1983, the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools approved PMI for accreditation. With the heightened need for high quality medical career training, additional campuses were introduced:

Albuquerque, NM – 1985

Mesa, AZ – 1986

Denver, CO – 1988

Seattle, WA – 1989

Chula Vista, CA – 1998

Colorado Springs, CO – 2002

Las Vegas, NV – 2003

Renton – 2004

Not much has changed philosophically since we opened our doors to students in 1972. Guided by our belief that the seeds for future growth must be planted in the classroom, PMI has become one of the leading medical career colleges in the western United States. Our students can choose either Certificate or Associate Degree Programs. Thousands of students graduate each year from Pima Medical Institute and the majority of those graduates are placed into jobs. Now, that’s significant.

We’re more than a vocational school. We provide life-altering opportunities that turn our students into competent medical professionals who can meet the expectations of 21st century employers. Our mission is to improve the quality of people’s lives by providing the best value in medical career education.
