PIHT Graduate Highlight – Dave Molinaro

Dave Molinaro graduated from Pennsylvania Institute of Health and Technology with a Specialized Associate Degree in Medical Assisting. He landed a job with Fresenius Medical upon graduation and has now grown in his career, still working for the same company today.

Dave said that he chose PIHT because it was a smaller school with more hands-on training and more one-on-one attention.

“This type of training made it easier for me to learn about my career,” Dave explained.

Entering the medical career field is not an easy task. The decision certainly comes from a drive to help others and that is exactly why Dave said he chose to enroll in the PIHT Medical Assisting program.

He said, “I have always enjoyed helping people…what better way can I do this than to save lives and make a difference in someone’s life who is in need?”

While attending PIHT, Dave had a great support network. His family, friends, the school, teachers and his kids all motivated him to complete his education.

Dave exclaimed, “I am very happy with my education from the Pennsylvania Institute of Health and Technology. It is something that can never be taken away and I would not be where I am today without it!”

Dave’s advice to new students is, “Your education is something you have to want to do. It isn’t always easy, but if you want it bad enough and try your hardest, you will be successful. You will be grateful for the time spent learning and gaining experience to prepare you for your career.”
