The History of Eastern International College
Eastern International College has been educating students in medical practices since it opened under the name Micro Tech Training Center in 1990. In the 29 years since the school was opened, we have been working hard to further perfect the training programs at the school and provide more students with a future in the medical profession of their choice. EIC added the Associate in Applied Science Degree in Dental Hygiene program and our first Bachelor’s Degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography.
