History[edit]

In 1993, Medix College purchased the former Southwestern Business College, which had served London students with courses in accounting, secretarial etc. In 1994, "Doctor’s Office/Medical Lab Assistant" and "Dental Assistant" courses were added to the programs offered. The level of students increased to over 200 that year, and Southwestern Medix expanded their facility from 5000 to 7500 sq. ft. As the need for specialized training in healthcare increased, Southwestern Medix placed students at London Health Science Center and other laboratories in the London area in 1995. From 1996 to 2004, more courses were added to the list, and campuses in Brantford, Kitchener, Scarborough and Toronto were founded. Their 15th anniversary was celebrated in 2008. In the Spring of 2009 the new Brampton campus was added to the Medix family of schools. As of 2018, Medix College consists of Brampton, Scarborough and Toronto.
