Important: Students applying to MCPHS may choose only one campus (Boston, Manchester or Worcester). We will not process applications for multiple campuses.
MCPHS University provides a unique academic environment to guide and support students toward successful, sustainable careers and leadership in healthcare. As a private independent institution with a long and distinguished history of specializing in health sciences education, the University offers traditional and non-traditional programs that embody teaching excellence, active scholarship and research, professional service, and community outreach.
The University has one of the largest and oldest pharmacy programs in the nation. With state-of-the-art facilities in Boston and constantly evolving and improving curricula, the School of Pharmacy educates students to become critical thinkers, to fill vital positions across a broad spectrum of the healthcare industry, and to become responsible healthcare professionals.
The PharmD program offers general, specialized, and applied science courses as well as liberal arts classes. In addition, our extensive experimental education program allows students to complete clinical rotations in areas such as inpatient medicine, community pharmacy, and ambulatory care. We are located in the heart of Boston's Longwood Medical and Academic Area, home to many of the nation's premier medical and research institutions.

Applicants for year 3 entrance (first professional year) must have successfully completed Organic Chemistry I and Organic Chemistry II with labs by Fall 2012. In order to be considered as a transfer student, you must have completed at least the Year 1 courses of the PharmD curriculum. Prerequisites (as indicated above) must have been completed at a regionally accredited college or university. Math and lab science courses must be completed no more than ten years prior to the anticipated date of matriculation to MCPHS. Students must receive a C or better for a course to be transferable. Preference is given to applicants who have completed pre-requisite courses at 4-year colleges or universities.
