Medix College was founded and began its quest in the training of Quality Healthcare Professionals.
Medix College purchases the former Southwestern Business College, which had served London students with courses in accounting, secretarial etc. New Medix training programs are Medical Office Administrator and introductory computer courses. Southwestern Business College/Medix College is conceived and located in 5000 sq. feet of classroom/training space in Oxbury Mall. Southwestern Medix trained approx. 90 students in 1993.
Doctors Office/Medical Lab Assistant and Dental Assistant courses are added to the programs offered. Training increases to over 200 students this year. Southwestern Medix expands their facility from 5000 to 7500 sq. ft.
The need for specialized training in Healthcare increases. Southwestern Medix places students at London Health Science Center and other laboratories in the London area. Dental students spend part of their training course at U.W.O. Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry. Practical training in the U.W.O. dental clinic enhances skills and allows students to obtain hands on experience. This training continues today.

Medix College expands to Milton to offer the Personal Support Worker program as the need for in home and long-term care services increase due to an aging population and a shortage of workers. Three years later the school is moved to Brantford.
