Degree: Health Sciences

The program is very fast paced, which I appreciate as I am getting older and am ready to begin my career. The tuition is expensive, and definitely requires a lot of personal sacrifice.

Degree: Physician Assistant

MCPHS Worcester is a fantastic grad school to attend. I highly recommend others to apply to this school. The work load is doable especially if you are studying a subject you love! The teachers and academic advisors are always there to help you improve and succeed.

A pro of my graduate program is that I am receiving an excellent education and will be prepared for the future. A con is that the Manchester NH campus does not offer any housing.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

The Physician Assistant program at MCPHS is an overall good program. The pros of the program include fascinating and engrossing classroom material, staff that are proficient in their field that are capable of applying it to the classroom, and the fact that the school is located right in Boston, which provides ample activities for the students. We, as PA students, are also blessed to be located at a pharmacy-based college and are taught Pharmacology by professors well-respected in their fields. The fact that the program is in Boston makes it a con, as well. The price of tuition is very expensive and the school does not offer housing to graduate students. We are left to rent privately run apartments, which are extremely expensive in the Boston area. This scholarship would be able cover almost one month's rent and would make a world of difference in the long run for the year. In the "please select your specific program" section there was no option for "Other" or "Physician Assistant" so I submitted M.D. so I could complete the ratings

My graduate program is very challenging because students are expected to function as Physician Assistants in 30 months. However, it is an extremely rewarding program, as you experience personal growth.
