This school was established in Tampa in 1978 as the Florida College of Medical and Dental Careers. The school changed its name to Concorde Career Institute in 1989. Responding to the need for a larger facility, the campus moved to its present location at 4202 West Spruce in January 1991. In October 1996, a satellite location was added at University Community Hospital. The satellite closed in 2001, so additional classrooms were added to the campus in 2002.
