PCI Health Training Center is a private career training school dedicated to fulfilling the educational needs of students interested in pursuing a career in the health care field. Founded by Dr. Roy Rose in 1978, the school was originally known as the Academy for Medical and Dental Assisting. PCI now has two campus locations, both in Texas, in Dallas and Richardson. The hands-on training at PCI prepares students for entry level positions as dental assistants, medical assistants, patient care technicians, and medical office assistants. Upon completing their respective program, students will receive a diploma and be prepared to sit for any applicable Texas state board examinations.
Dental Assistant program is only available at the Richardson location.
PCI Health Training Center is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC).
Faculty members at PCI Health Training Center are working professionals who have several years of experience practicing in their respective fields. Instructors include doctors, nurses and other medical professionals whose professional experience ranges from 5 to 20 years in the industry. Small class sizes allow instructors to provide students with as much individual attention as needed to master relevant skills.
PCI Health Training Center is a commuter school and does not offer on-campus housing arrangements. The school offers flexible day and evening classes, allowing working adults to maintain their commitments to work and family. Students receive instruction in both classroom and laboratory settings, enabling them to obtain the necessary knowledge and relevant skills needed to enter the workforce in entry-level positions. Hands-on training in the lab begins during the first week of class. Programs are typically completed in six to nine months, which includes an externship requirement. Assistance with resume writing, job search techniques, and job placement services are available. Financial aid is also available to those who qualify.
Job placements are not guaranteed, however, job placement services are available.
