MCPHS: A Global University
The World Needs MCPHS Now
MCPHS students, faculty, and alumni put their skills and knowledge to work wherever in the world they are needed. MCPHS supports them all with a robust set of resources.
Approximately 15 percent of the MCPHS student body is of international origin, and we are committed to giving them maximum support on their transition to the United States, including assistance with immigration logistics. Most important, we help them become integral members of this friendly, collaborative community of people who share their dedication to creating a healthier planet.
Our international collaborations with worldwide healthcare providers, educational institutions, and Fortune 100 companies provide MCPHS students with one-of-a-kind learning opportunities. These experiences give them distinctive knowledge and skills and a competitive edge across the healthcare universe.
Research and clinical rotations abroad
Students enrolled in some programs can satisfy their curriculum requirements—and enhance their résumés—by taking part in immersive five- or six-week clinical rotations and clerkships in cities like Cape Town, Beijing, Lima, London, and Seoul.
Faculty partnerships and research collaborations
Many MCPHS faculty have global backgrounds, which have enriched our extensive international connections. And an increasing number of MCPHS professors are conducting important research with partners at institutions around the world.

“After settling in Agadir for 2 days, we embarked on our journey to the mountains making our first stop in Tiznit village… We began setting up supplies for the big rural health clinic the following day where hundreds of people lined up to see various doctors… Moroccan patients we saw had conditions of high blood pressure, cataracts, poor oral health, and urology issues, which was very eye opening for our group. We also saw many smiles… which melted our hearts knowing that we were touching lives!”
