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 Pharmacy department. The white coat order form will be available through this page later this spring. Sizes should be based on blazers or jackets that you wear over other clothing.

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. Instructions on how to self-enroll will be posted mid-summer. 

During the fall semester, all incoming pharmacy students enroll in Service and Care in the Community, a course based on an educational method in which the participants are involved in service work and active learning. This course is based on the conviction that providing service and care is critically important for anyone who aspires to become a member of a healthcare profession.

Students are required to provide two hours of service each week for ten weeks during the fall semester.

Please return to this site mid-July for a list of available Service-Learning sites and descriptions of each as well as an online selection form. You should review this list and choose the top sites where you would most like to do your service work. After reviewing the list you will proceed to the online selection form and indicate your top choices. We will do our best to match you with one of your top choices, but we cannot guarantee that you will be matched to one of them.

Preference will be given based on when you enter your preferences.
