The history of The Academy of Health Care Professions extends to 1953, when physicians founded MacGregor Medical Association. MacGregor Medical Association operated as a physician practice in 42 locations. In 1988, the Association identified a need to provide quality medical training to employees, enabling their skills to be utilized by the Association's expanding physicians' practices. The Academy of Health Care Professions was founded to provide the health care training needed.
In the following years, the demand for allied health care workers with specialized medical training surged from not only within MacGregor Medical Association, but also from other health care employers. In order to address this need, The Academy of Health Care Professions applied to the Texas Workforce Commission in 1990, requesting to offer programs to students beyond the scope of the Association's in-house needs. The Academy was accepted by the Texas Workforce Commission that same year and broadened its student base.
