Not one, but two students at Pima Medical Institute, 370 Printers Parkway in Colorado Springs received national honors from the American Medical Technologists. Ronnie Lynn Lewis won the Outstanding Student Award in the Dental Assistant category and Philip Young received the Outstanding Student Award in the Medical Assistant category.
The Outstanding Student Award recognizes students enrolled in Allied Health Programs whose achievements are judged to be outstanding. The student body with faculty supervision nominates a student based on academic record, extracurricular school or profession-related activities, attendance, cooperation and conduct, initiative and ability to get along with people. Students are selected from Allied Health Professional accredited career colleges throughout the U.S. Both Lewis and Young will receive $250, a plaque and a free full package registration to the AMT Educational Program and National meeting July 11-16 in Kansas City, Missouri.
ÂWe were just ecstatic when we heard two of our students won top honors in this national competition,Â said Karen McGrath, campus director for the Colorado Springs career college. ÂOur campus is smaller than a lot of the career colleges in the Allied Health system, but the bottom line is our students really excel. Ronnie and Philip are proof of that. The students, staff and faculty are extremely proud of both of them.Â
The competition honors students in seven categories, Dental Assistant, Medical Administrative Assistant, Medical Laboratory Assistant, Medical Assistant, Medical Laboratory Technician, Office Laboratory Technician and Phlebotomy Technician. The Colorado Springs campus has programs for Dental Assistant, Medical Administrative Assistant, Medical Assistant, Pharmacy Technician and Veterinary Assistant.
