What are some good colleges in Massachusetts to attend for becoming a Pharmacist?
I am a Junior in high school and I have wanted to be a Pharmacist for a while now, and I am wondering if there are any good colleges for majoring in Pharmacy in Massachusetts because I would like to stay close to home. Any feedback would be great! #medicine #pharmacy #pharmacists #pharmacist
Luckily, Massachusetts has some of the best colleges in the country! The Bouve College of Health Sciences at Northeastern has a great Pharmacy program, and includes many different tracks and foci- plus, Northeastern has some amazing residency opportunities and co-op/internship placements. Also in Boston is the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS University), which is part of the Colleges of the Fenway consortium. At MCPHS, you would also be able to take courses at MassArt, Emmanuel College, Simmons College, Wheelock College and Wentworth University at no extra cost.
Best of luck in your search!
