about the university

MCPHS is a private, not-for-profit, healthcare-focused university with a full spectrum of healthcare programs. As a teaching institution, we are passionate about our students, and they are equally passionate about advancing into careers in a vital industry. While it’s nearly impossible to put a price on building your life around your passion, we think you’ll find that MCPHS is a remarkable, all-around value for what you get in return.

Students at MCPHS are professionally focused and driven, and represent almost every state in the U.S. and dozens of foreign countries. MCPHS not only enjoys a rich diversity in our student body, but also offers a rich diversity of healthcare programs, paralleling the interdisciplinary team approach in modern healthcare institutions.

Our students have access to the most sought-after internships, clinical placements and research opportunities right in our own backyard. From the leading hospitals in central Massachusetts and New Hampshire to Boston’s world-class Longwood Medical and Academic Area, our students gain valuable, real-world experience in institutions, including the #1 pediatric hospital in the country and New England’s top-ranked cancer treatment center, to name a few.

As a teaching institution, our faculty is focused on our students.

Unlike research institutions, our faculty are focused on one thing: teaching. Our distinguished full-time faculty are fellows of national academies and have served as presidents of national professional associations. They are editors of medical journals, investigators on federally funded research projects, and business leaders. Above all, they are mentors to our students, highly available and supportive.

our accreditations

MCPHS University is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (formerly the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc.). Accreditation of an institution of higher education by the Commission indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied though a peer review process.
