Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

This program has an excellent location and staff, you will receive a good education which is the reason you are here. However, the school is way overpopulated. There is no where near enough study space or resources for all of the students. Also, because the undergraduates live primarily on campus the campus buildings are often very loud as they social in the library among other academic areas.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

MCPHS is a great school with a lot to offer at a small campus. The Worcester campus is all graduate students which gives all the health programs a more adult, professional feel. There are several hospitals in the area, and we are a short drive to Boston.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2016

Overall MCPHSU is a great place if you know want to be in the health field. However, there is a heavy workload and social life is lacking on campus.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Accelerated program with good professors who know their material. They are very accessible and very kind. It's a graduate school. Come prepared. It is not undergrad anymore. Cons: Not much to do in the area, but considering you are in a professional school, it helps focusing on studying.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my graduate program are the accessibility of working on your Master's degree on your own terms via online courses. You have weekly assignments but they can be completed once a week which leaves time for family, work, and home life. The cons are that all the work is your responsibility. You need a lot of self discipline to complete the courses and if you have an issue trying to understand something you might have to do your own research. However, this program is through an accredited institution that is held in great admiration and I am proud to be completing my degree there.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Master of Physician Assistant Studies (Boston): Amazing program, great rotation placements, competitive acceptance rates, high quality faculty and classes. Cons: Expensive area to live in, no accessibility to exams after you have taken them, longer PA program than some.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

As a new and evolving program, the physical therapy program faculty and staff at MCPHS University are always open to hear opinions from students on potential changes for the program's future. The students are able to actively participate in changes being made in the school of physical therapy, and in their overall education. There are also plenty of opportunities for fun and extracurricular activities outside of the academic world in Worcester, MA. This makes it easy to create new friendships with peers when first arriving to the school.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

MCPHS is a great university, expanding with diverse programs. I am a part of their fairly new optometry program; and I happy that I will be able to grow with them making use of the many technological advances that will help shape my future. The only downside to a new program is not having years of experience but this all will pass with the building of a stable foundation in this field.
