Medtech is a for-profit medical education facility founded in Indianapolis, Indiana, in 2004.

Consecutive campuses were opened in Greenwood, Indiana, in 2007; Fort Wayne, Indiana, in 2008; and Lexington, Kentucky, in 2009. Also in 2008, Medtech created a separate School of Nursing to meet the increasing economic demand.[1] In 2010, Medtech joined forces with Sanz School [2] and Javelin Technical Training Center [3] under the ownership of JTC Education Holdings.[4] This merger brought the Medtech campus total to 10,[5] adding locations in Atlanta; Morrow, Georgia; Tucker, Georgia; Falls Church, Virginia; Silver Spring, Maryland; and Washington, D.C. In October 2011, Medtech announced the acquisition of Radians College, a nursing school in Washington, D.C.[6] In July, 2012, Medtech announced the acquisition of Camelot Healthcare Training Institute in Altamonte Springs, Florida. Shortly after the acquisition, Camelot was re-branded to Medtech Institute and its location moved to Orlando.[7][8] In February, 2014, Medtech announced the acquisition of National Medical Education & Training Center (NMETC).[9]
