The best aspect of MCPHS University is the fact that the University goes out of its way to create pre-pathways for every desired health care related career. For instance, there is a Pre-Med PA pathway and there is a Pre-Med PT pathway. Thus, the school truly takes the stress of finding the correct courses to complete the prerequisites necessary for applying to graduate school.

The school is amazing and perfect for the career path you choose. I could not have chosen a better school for my future.

I only was able to experience the school through our orientation days, but from what I observed during this two day period it seems like a focused and serious, yet relaxed learning environment!@
