We hosted a student counselling session recently in our Chennai office and Mr. Bakhtiyar Baidaralin, the International Admission Counselor of MCPHS University spoke to prospective students.
Here is a quick summary of Mr. Baidaralin introducing MCPHS University to prospective students.
MCPHS University was earlier known as Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. Established in 1823 it is Boston’s oldest academic institution. MCPHS University is unique as it only focuses on the healthcare, pharmacy and nursing professions. There are no schools for engineering, arts, or humanities.
The University has a strong international student community and the Indian Students Association at MCPHS is one of the most vibrant student communities. The Association celebrates festivals and days of national importance and the students share information on Indian culture and traditions.
In a recent article published in Forbes magazine, MCPHS University was ranked higher than Harvard and MIT for the starting salaries of graduates and the time taken by students to recover the money spent on their university education. On an average over a ten-year period, MCPHS University graduates get a starting salary of US$100,000 per year. This is because the healthcare sector offers great monetary benefits and there is a huge demand for trained and competent healthcare professionals.
In the USA, with the number of domestic students opting for healthcare education getting lesser, more international students are applying to study medicine, nursing and pharmacy and join research-oriented programmes.
MCPHS University offers state-of-the-art learning facilities and dedicated international student support, which makes studying here a great experience. Additionally, the city of Boston offers a great living experience and has a wide variety of tourist attractions.
If you are interested in studying medicine or a related healthcare programme in the USA, do consider studying at MCPHS University. Contact our friendly study abroad counselors on 1-800-103-2581 for more information on studying at MCPHS University.
