Welcome to the PharmD Program

Congratulations on your acceptance and decision to attend the PharmD program at MCPHS. We’re excited that you’ll be joining us in the fall. Before the program begins there are some next steps you’ll need to take to get ready. On this page you will find important information and forms that you will need to begin your studies. We will continue to post program specific information here so please bookmark this page and visit it often.

Next steps for incoming PharmD students. 

White coats and name tags will be ordered for each student by the department. White coat sizes should be based on blazers or jackets that you wear over other clothing. The fall 2020 white coat order form is now available. Please complete and submit the form by August 14.

Questions can be directed to Holly Baker at holly.baker@mcphs.edu.

The white coat ceremony is an important milestone for our incoming pharmacy students. We do plan to celebrate with a white coat ceremony for the class of 2023 when it is safe to do so. More details will be announced in the future.

The Accelerated PharmD Program uses electronic testing (ExamSoft/Examplify) for all courses and for administering the Pharmacy Curriculum Outcomes Assessment (PCOA) exam. All students are required to bring a laptop (Mac or PC) meeting the minimum specifications linked below in order for you to be able to sit for your exams and take the PCOA. When referring to the minimum specifications, take note of the requirements mentioning ExamID and ExamMonitor which require your electronic device to be equipped with a webcam and microphone. Please also note that, if fall classes are held remotely due to COVID-19 restrictions, a desktop computer may be used in place of the aforementioned laptop.

Each student will be required to purchase a privacy screen or privacy filter that fits their device.

The Office of Experiential Education will play an important role during your time here as we guide you through the rotation process during your P2 and P3 years. We’ve put together a brief presentation to introduce you to our office and to give you an overview of what to expect in your experiential rotations. In order to access the presentation, you will need to self-enroll in the Wor/Man Introduction to Experiential Education course on Blackboard. Download instructions on how to self enroll.
