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.

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.
