I love my college, Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. I knew from the moment I walked inside for Accepted Students Day that MCPHS was the place for me! It's in the heart of Boston, Massachusetts and is surrounded by many amazing opportunities and hospitals. This college is very focused on medical professions and really set up their students for success by having great professors and opportunities to find nearby internships/volunteer opportunities. I am very happy with my choice to attend MCPHS because the courses I am taking are interesting and important for my future. The location of the school is ideal for me, as I plan on volunteering at Boston Children's Hospital which is right across the street. MCPHS also has excellent graduate programs including the Master of Physician Assistant program that I plan on applying for in a few years. MCPHS is a small, safe, diverse college worth looking into if you're interested in the medical field.
Review Massachusetts College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences
Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences is a really great fit for students who are driven. In this school you are surrounded by people of similar interests regardless of what major you are in, you are surround by people who want to go into one heath related profession or another and who's ultimate goal is to help others. The campus is incredibly diverse and accepting of others differences and is built on a platform of respect. MCPHS has a lot of beneficial aspects such as its various types of academic assistance that it provides for all of its students, but if I were to change something I would try and build more of a community. There are students from all over the world, and from many different backgrounds, it would be nice to become more familiar with those around us.
During my time here at mcphs I have learned that time management is the key to your success here. The University as a whole is extremely small, making it easy to connect with your peers and professors. The curriculum is extremely fast pace and can make it easy to feel overwhelmed. One thing I would change is knowing all the different majors that the university offers prior to coming here. The Pharm D is the most advertised program here. Smaller programs like sonography, radiology, and pharm toxicology are branded often.
