The Online Learning Experience

You can balance career advancement with the rest of your life by studying online, on your schedule. This is world-class healthcare training. No shortcuts. You will be trained by the same faculty who train our on-campus students, and you will earn the same sought-after degrees that you would if you were here in person.

Advance your career on your schedule

Work in virtual teams with your peers and gain real-world exposure to today's distributed workforce, connect with faculty who are leaders in their fields, or access library resources - it's all possible through online learning at MCPHS.

Our advanced learning management system provides easy access to a uniform course experience throughout your entire degree or certificate program, enabling you to gain the knowledge and skills you need to advance your career. Course assignments are unique and engaging and range from providing insight into your clinical experience to maintaining a blog. And because engagement and discussion are hallmarks of online learning at MCPHS, professors spark conversation on our discussion board, leading to thought-provoking conversations and professional connections.

We offer a variety of programs spanning the healthcare spectrum, including bachelor's, master's, doctoral, and graduate certificate online programs.
