The school originated in 1978 when Dr. Roy Rose founded The Academy for Medical & Dental Assistants. In 1983 Texas Education Corporation purchased the school and renamed it the VTI-Academy for Medical & Dental Assistants. The school received its initial accreditation from the Accrediting Commission of the National Association of Trade & Technical Schools in the same year. In 1990 Prince Careers Inc. purchased the campus and continues its tradition of providing highly skilled personnel for the growing allied health industry under the name PCI Health Training center. In March 2005 PCI opened their second campus in Richardson, Texas.
