The English Language Academy (ELA) at MCPHS University provides language skills and personal enrichment to help prepare international students for success not only at MCPHS University, but in the American healthcare industry as well. This unique program offers health science courses that will assist you with communicating in practical healthcare settings, networking with clinical practitioners, and interacting with patients.
MCPHS University is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and the ELA program is encompassed within its institutional accreditation. The ELA is staffed by experienced faculty with master’s degrees in either applied linguistics or TESOL. The curriculum includes core classes that focus on language skills (reading, writing, listening, speaking, and grammar) in addition to content knowledge (science, social sciences, literature, art, culture, and history). Medical vocabulary, nursing, pharmacy, math, and other health science courses are also offered, depending on your academic and professional goals. Classes are taught in our state-of-the-art facilities, including new science and computer laboratories at our Worcester campus.
Whatever your ambition is, take the next step toward maximizing your career potential by expanding your knowledge and marketability with courses at the ELA.
