Living Your Best MCPHS Life

Student life at MCPHS

At MCPHS, we look at student life holistically. We want you to be inspired in all your activities on campus — academic, professional, and extracurricular.

A dynamic, dedicated community

As you walk through the hallways of our three campuses, you feel the energy of people committed to a healthier world, who enjoy working to making that happen. They organize and participate in activities that spark their inspiration, encompass their passions and, ultimately, empower their futures. The members of our close-knit residential life community are supportive of one another and make the most of Boston's wide range of entertainment, sporting, and cultural events.

Boston, Massachusetts

MCPHS is the oldest institution of higher learning in Boston. Our urban campus offers access to leading-edge scholarship as well as clinical experiences at some of the most prestigious medical and research institutions in the world—many of them a short walk away. And we are members of a five-college consortium, The Colleges of the Fenway, giving you access to people and resources at four academic worlds beyond our own.

Located 40 miles west of Boston, Worcester is the second-largest urban area in New England. A significant center for both healthcare and higher education, Worcester is home to 12 colleges and universities and more than 35,000 students. The MCPHS campus, situated in the heart of downtown Worcester, is within easy reach of dozens of clinics and several major hospitals.

Just 50 miles from Boston, the MCPHS Manchester campus is located in the center of this charming New England city. The campus, equipped with the latest healthcare technologies, is noteworthy for its close-knit community, a community with a shared dedication to working toward a common purpose—better healthcare for all.

Inclusive Community

We embrace the power of inclusivity. After all, healthcare equity remains one of the most pressing issues of our time, and we have a responsibility to address it. We have been nurturing visionaries who could picture a better future for patients since 1823.

Life at the Heart of Innovation

Boston, Manchester, and Worcester are hubs of cutting-edge health sciences. Your MCPHS experience isn’t limited to campus boundaries. Each location is embedded in a neighborhood of leading health-sector institutions and life-science organizations where you will explore, train, and invent next-generation care.

Cardinal On the Street

Cardinal on the Street took to the MCPHS Student Activities Fair to ask what our future healthcare leaders wanted to be when they were kids. What was your childhood dream job?

"Students across all programs are constantly working together, from those who spearhead new fundraising opportunities to others who go out into the community offering free health education at the local YMCA. Seeing familiar faces every day really contributes to the feeling of family that we have on this campus."
