Partnership with MCPHS

We are proud to announce a collaboration with the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS) that will guarantee qualified students admission to the esteemed Boston-based university.

Under the agreement with MCPHS, a world-renowned medical research institution, students interested in pursuing a health care career now have an extraordinary chance to take a step in that direction. “The MCPHS program aligns well with The MacDuffie School,” said Head of School, Mr. Steve Griffin. “MCPHS works hard to ensure that their graduates are certified in their home country, which is great for our international population. In addition, many of our local students are looking at careers in health sciences; a path to guaranteed admission is a wonderful benefit to all of our students. This collaboration is another seal of approval for a MacDuffie education.”

This outstanding opportunity is contingent on students’ success in prerequisite courses at MacDuffie and, if needed, an English proficiency test. According to the agreement, students with a minimum B average in MCPHS-specified science and math courses will be eligible for a reserved spot in an undergraduate program. Students graduating from MacDuffie with a minimum B average in the prerequisite courses and who meet the English language requirements are guaranteed both a reserved spot and a scholarship.

“In the health sciences, it’s important to have good training and references,” said Ita Duron-Hermouet, Director of Admission International Research and Strategy at MCPHS. “Our graduates have the most prestigious internships available.” Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess, Dana-Farber Center, Harvard Medical School, and the Harvard School of Public Health are just a few of the institutions where MCPHS graduates obtain internships and employment.

We’re very excited about this partnership, which celebrates our students’ commitment to the “E” in our CIRCLE values–Excellence.
