Meet the PIHT Staff: Medical Coordinator Pam Hughes

Medical Coordinator Pam Hughes believes that learning should be fun and challenging, so she incorporates those characteristics into her teaching and the classroom each day. Each day, Pam enters the classroom ready to embrace knowledge on students in the healthcare field.

She said, “I am very passionate about what I teach and I encourage the students to engage in conversation and give me personal examples to help others understand the topic more clearly. Group discussions have always worked well in my classes to help students gain a full understanding of healthcare topics.”

Her passion doesn’t stop with the classroom. Pam says that the students keep her teaching. “I love the students PIHT and when you know you are a part of their education, it gives you great satisfaction. When they walk across that stage on graduation day, feelings of pride and happiness for the students overcome me.”

As a healthcare instructor at PIHT, Pam says that her favorite part of teaching at PIHT is watching them grow as individuals throughout their enrollment. Her advice for students is to set goals and never stop learning.

A few fun facts about Pam Hughes:
• The little free time she has is spent with her family, but most of all she continues her education so she can make sure the students are getting the most up-to-date medical information
• Her favorite vacation spot is Myrtle Beach, SC
• Her favorite book is anything to do with nursing because that seems to be all she ever reads
