The Pima Medical Institute (PMI) is a for-profit medical career college that trains students for careers as allied health care professionals.[1] PMI is the largest independently owned, private allied health school in the U.S.[2] and is nationally accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES).[3]


Pima Medical Institute was founded in Tucson, Arizona, in January 1972 by Richard Luebke, Sr. and his wife, JoAnn. The first program offered was nursing assistant. Based on job demands in the community, Pima grew their programs and campuses to fill those needs,[4] including the launch of online programs in 2006.

The company owns and operates 17 campuses across the western United States.[5]
