  2. Matricaria Lobby

    Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences is the oldest institution of higher education in Boston. Our modern urban campus is located in the world-renowned Longwood Medical and Academic area, the city's hub of healthcare research and innovation. We offer 100+ healthcare programs that attract top students from across the nation and around the globe. Our team-based interprofessional education programs bring together students from different disciplines and schools to collaborate, teach, and learn. They train with the latest technology and engage in clinical rotations at prestigious medical and research institutions.

  3. Diagnostic Medical Sonography

    The diagnostic medical sonography lab has six scanning bays with 12 ultrasound systems that simulate the professional workstations in clinical sites. Ergonomically correct chairs and electric beds allow students to position themselves correctly, minimize stress, and scan properly. Each advanced system is equipped for a wide range of imaging, including cardiac, vascular, OB/GYN, breast, abdominal, and musculoskeletal. The monitor can be hooked to any system to display the imaging on the screen for personal or group viewing. This enables instructors to monitor students' scanning abilities one-on-one, demonstrate best practices hands-on, and help students continue advancing their imaging skills.

  4. Pharmacy

    As the second-oldest pharmacy school in the U.S., we have prepared more pharmacists than any other university in the world. Our pharmacy lab is an actual licensed pharmacy, staffed by licensed pharmacists who conduct hands-on simulations, teach students to read a prescription, process it, and ensure it correct. They begin basic patient education, and learn about complex issues like insurance and patient allergies. We are the only school to offer a business plan competition in the PharmD program where students can develop an idea and potentially bring it to market.

  5. Arts and Sciences

    The School of Arts and Sciences provides a core foundation of liberal arts and basic sciences education so that each graduate leaves with the well-rounded knowledge to provide quality care and positively impact patient outcomes and research. The school is home to some of our most diverse programs including public health, health psychology, chemistry, biology, health sciences, and premedical and health studies programs. Students work alongside faculty in our state-of-the-art laboratories, such as this chemistry lab, using the latest equipment. The hands-on experience gained here can be applied to internships and clinical and research opportunities later on in the program.

  6. Physician Assistant Studies

    The Physician Assistant lab is designed to provide the most comprehensive hands-on learning experience available. Future medical professionals master diagnostic and treatment skills, and all aspects of quality care needed to be successful in this challenging and exciting discipline. Students engage in procedures in a high-tech professional environment overseen by expert practitioners. The lab features state-of-the-art integrated systems, equipment and technology identical to that found in medical settings like doctor's offices, clinics, and hospitals, helping to prepare Physician Assistant students to take on whatever they will encounter in the professional world.

  7. Dental Hygiene

    Being the longest-running dental hygiene program in the country, our modern facility features 24 treatment areas set up just like a dental office. Because we're a licensed public health clinic—unlike many dental hygiene programs—our students are required to have their own working areas. Each bay features the latest in dental hygiene equipment. The clinic also houses a dental materials laboratory and rooms for radiology. A dentist is available to answer questions about a patient's medical history and administer local anesthetic. When students graduate, they have the knowledge, expertise, and confidence to step into a dental office and excel in their chosen career.

  8. Student Space

    We recently conducted a significant reconfiguration of one of the buildings on the Boston Campus. The second floor has been transformed into soft seating and small tables so students can work comfortably by themselves or in small groups or socialize. The third floor has expanded student study space. This is quiet study. The fourth floor has many new active learning classrooms that are completely reconfigurable for today's flexible teaching and learning methods. Many classrooms are connected so that faculty can move between different groups of students that are working on different projects.

  9. Dining

    There are countless dining options, both on campus and in the neighborhoods nearby. Our primary dining facility is the Dining Commons. A wide range of hot and cold entrees, salad bar, and specialty foods are available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It's also a great place to study, socialize, and meet people from other schools. There are six other options for dining and provisions. All students are given a Fenway Card, which has a convenient pre-paid account you can use to purchase food at the campus dining facilities and at some off-campus restaurants and stores.

  10. Longwood Medical and Academic Area

    Boston's Longwood Medical and Academic area - a 213-acre neighborhood in the City of Boston is a thriving and dynamic community of medical, academic, research and cultural organizations. Home to 22 institutions including three Harvard teaching hospitals, three research or research treatment centers, a State mental health center, a children's treatment center and an international pharmaceutical company. Each day more than 46,000 employees and over 21,000 students provide medical care, conduct research, teach or attend school in the neighborhood. Longwood Medical Area institutions jointly average 6,500 job openings per year and receive about 2.6 million patient visits annually.

  11. Nursing

    Our state-of-the-art nursing lab simulates the fast-paced, exciting environment of the Boston-area hospitals where students will eventually do their clinical rounds. Working hands-on with world-class nursing faculty, students learn to think fast on their feet as they practice taking blood pressure, pumping medications, and giving injections on simulation mannequins programmable with vital signs and multiple health problems. This enables students to build the skills, techniques, and confidence to begin seeing real patients and to pass the national licensing exam.

  12. Housing

    The school has four residential housing options. Students live in apartment-style units with full kitchens high above our academic and lab spaces, more traditional corridor-style living arrangements, or in suites of shared space with students from other area colleges and universities. Different accommodations offer different programming, events and activities through the Resident Assistants and Residential Life Office.

  13. Our Neighborhood

    Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences is located adjacent to Boston's Fenway neighborhood. In the Back Bay Fens, often called The Fens, is a parkland and urban wild in Boston. The Fens gives its name to the Fenway-Kenmore neighborhood, and thereby to Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox. Many dining and entertainment options are available and there are not many experiences so iconic as a game at Fenway in the shadow of the Citgo sign.
