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.

The support you need to be academically successful.

On our Boston campus, every student is assigned a MAC team of Mentors and Academic Coaches for personalized guidance and support. Every member of a student’s MAC team is directly connected to their academic program, ensuring that the guidance they provide is personalized to the needs of each student. The MAC team includes:

Mentors: Faculty Mentors assist students with broad curriculum and career exploration, graduate and continuing education, an understanding of professionalism, and general advice in their field.

Academic Coaches: Academic Coaches assist students with the academic challenges and transitions they encounter on their way to becoming health care professionals, including helping with class registration. Academic Coaches provide personalized performance-enhancing guidance to help students set academic goals, manage their time more effectively and make the most of campus resources. Academic Coaches help students develop test taking skills and develop self-management techniques.

In addition, peer mentoring is available to students through CASE. Peer mentors are upper level students dedicated to first year student success by supporting new students and ensuring a smooth transition to academic life at MCPHS.
