Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2021

MCPHS is a specific kind of institution. The staff is by far the most caring, personable group. Its difficult but its worth it. I have yet to graduate but Im looking forward to it. If you love healthcare so much that your'e willing to study as much as you can come on over. The classes are incredibly in depth and its easy to make study groups. Coffee in the commuter lounge and study space. Good luck, happy studying.

Where I was before compare to now? I believe I made the right decision to come here. I left my career, house, and people I was comfortable with to a place where I can expand my knowledge and met new people along the way. The professors at MCPHS-Manchester are the best. They will help you when you are in need. One word to describe this place "family ".

MCPHS is an outstanding institution where excellence and practicality meets and dance with one another beautifully. The environment is encouraging, friendly and engaging. There's a strong emphasis on community and collaboration. There's always help when needed. It's a place that's small enough to get individual attention to your specific needs. The program is rigorous but not impossible.

It's a good school. In the end it's all about passing boards and they prepared me well.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2020

I am currently enrolled in the Pharmacy program, I am in my third year of the doctorate program which means I am considered a graduate student. The reason why I am attending MCPHS is because I loved the school since I walked in. In such a big city, the school is a small community of friends, teachers and advisors. During my two years here, I have been working at the Center for Academic Success and Enrichment which helps students with classes, study tips and tutoring. I have learned more about friendship, teamwork, dedication and persistence in these two years and I wouldn't trade it for the world. MCPHS helps students achieve their goals and determine exactly what career path they want to go into. Without my teachers and advisors I still wouldn't know what my passion is.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

The MPAS program at this campus is an accelerated program. The benefit to this is that I will be done in 2 yrs; however, the workload is quite stressful. I am married and the parent of 2 children so my life outside of school is not exactly stress-free in itself. The program is student-centered - the program sets each student up with a peer mentor (1 2nd year student) and a faculty mentor. This allows students to have some guidance in navigating the program. This program functions with distance-education between two campuses. The same professor teaches a class to students in two different locations using a video conference capability. In addition, the student population is quite diverse.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

The professors are wonderful and are really wiling to work with you to improve your success. I love the small class atmosphere and they use the latest technology. I didn't live on campus so it is hard for me to judge. But the people who work at MCPHS really want to help you succeed in your goals.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2017

The Physician Assistant Master's program at Mass. College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences in Boston is exceptional in terms of courses offered, faculty and learning resources made available to the student. For example, I was able to take Human Anatomy through Harvard Medical School - a definite perk!
