Worcester Healthcare Community

Welcome to the heart of healthcare.

Worcester’s status as the heart of Massachusetts makes it the perfect place to gain hands-on clinical experiences in various settings. The second-largest city in the commonwealth is home to world-class medical institutions and hospitals, where our students have access to clinical placements, internships, and research opportunities.

All students at MCPHS–Worcester are required to complete clinical experiences as part of their program. We have affiliated with various medical institutions to give our students vital experiences that will better prepare them for future exciting careers in healthcare.
