Pima Medical Institute Announces Launch of First Master’s Degree Program


Online Master of Science in Organizational Leadership Offers Public Health and Health Care Administration Specializations

TUCSON, Ariz. (October 28, 2020) – Pima Medical Institute has officially announced it will begin offering a Master of Science in Organizational Leadership. The program will offer students two specialization options – public health administration and health care administration.

This is the first master’s degree program offered by Pima Medical. The medical career college was founded in Tucson and has been educating students since 1972. This new program is something that has been in the works for some time. This is an advanced degree and is best suited for people looking for leadership roles. Each specialization equips students with the practical and analytical tools needed to successfully lead organizations through today’s many challenges.

The wide-ranging scope and breadth of knowledge of the degree program made it an ideal fit for Pima Medical.

“After research, feedback from our advisory committee and market surveys, we determined that a broad approach would provide the best opportunities for our graduates,” said John Streit, Ed.D, Master of Science in Organizational Leadership Program Director. “We’ve had a good share of students express interest in moving on to a master’s degree and this program offers them a chance to build the skills needed to manage teams, as well as build skills required for those looking for global management positions.”

While the public health specialization is new for Pima Medical, the career college currently offers associate and a bachelor’s degree programs in health care administration. For students on the health care administration track, they can foreseeably complete multiple degrees and be in the field working, before many who might take a traditional university approach.

“At Pima Medical, we are always looking for opportunities to advance career and earning opportunities for our students and alumni,” said Fred Freedman, President and CEO, Pima Medical Institute. “Healthcare is at the epicenter of the seismic post-COVID shift in the service sector. We have every intention for our students to maintain stackable advantages.”

The Master of Science in Organizational Leadership is slated to begin in early 2021 and is an addition to an already robust fully online curriculum. Pima Medical offers multiple bachelor’s degree programs as well as an associate degree in health care administration.
