Thank you everybody for all of your help. The radiography program that they have is 96 weeks long and the phlebotomy program is 11 weeks. I have a campus tour this upcoming wednesday, so I will find out more about the school. But if anyone was interested in seeing what they are there website is www.pmi.edu.

welcome,ALI..............so glad that you have joined us.............wishing you every success with your goals.............blessings and hugs...................lita



“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

I am familiar with the school only in applying to be a program director there.
In the medical field I would suggest Nursing as a career choice as one with the most directions and opportunity, next would be as a Radiology technician there are many direction you can go in, next would be Respiratory Care it is a good paying career but what your scope of practice. LVN/LPN, phlebotomy and so on will pay the bills and are good stepping stones to higher levels of patient care and service.
Radiology is not direct patient care and mostly you spend only 10 to 60 minutes with any person and often never get to know them, Nurses and Respiratory Therapist provide direct patient care under Doctor direction.

Hi Ali, welcome to the team!
Just to clarify things for you, in order to become an actual RADIOLOGIST you must first go through a 4 year PRE-MED program and then go through 4 years of MEDICAL SCHOOL, followed by a few more years of a RADIOLOGY FELLOWSHIP program, before you can become a real radiologist(altogether approximately 12 years of education after graduating from high school). If you wanted to become a RADIOLOGY TECHNICIAN, however, it would take you a much shorter period of time (1-2 years, depending on the program). There are lots of schools around the U.S. for that. Phlebotomy is even easier to learn, so the programs are typically less than a year to become certified at that. As a result, they make a lot less money than radiology technicians. Best of luck to you in whatever path you decide to take!

I plan on going to school to become a radiologist, but I'm not sure when I will be able to start going to school for that, so I am trying to get into a shorter program for phlebotomy. I was just wondering if anyone had heard of Pima Medical Institute and if it was a good school to go? Thanks ahead of time for any help. Good luck to everyone with there weight loss.
