Here, those contributions are brought forward so all students, faculty, staff, and alumni can see the stories of people who have made a positive impact on the MCPHS experience.

We asked Community members how it feels to be at MCPHS for the Bicentennial.


First-Generation College Students

We provide an on-ramp to healthcare professions for individuals from many different backgrounds. In fall of 2022, more than 1,500 students who leveraged our Center for Academic Success & Enrichment self-identified as first-generation, representing 23% of the total student body.

People Are the Heartbeat of MCPHS

Healthcare is about people helping people. We keep this top of mind as we shape professionals in the health and life sciences who will serve patients in different ways — from providing direct care to running clinics to discovering medicines.
