MCHP President's Welcome Letter

Welcome to MCHP!

I hope that it’s evident from what you’re seeing on these pages that we’re unique.

As the only hospital-affiliated college in Maine, we’re able to offer a healthcare education that’s very rare. Because of our affiliation, we have immediate access to practitioners across healthcare disciplines. We also have a deep understanding of how to best educate healthcare professionals so that they are work-ready upon graduation.

We’re also unique as a result of our commitment to putting our students first. Every decision that we make is guided by a strong belief that our students deserve respect, support, and superior educational opportunities. Our faculty and staff are here because of their loyalty to these ideals. As a result, they are the best of the best!

We’re eager for you to get the information you need from our website, but we know that the best way to learn about us is to visit us. Once you get here, you’ll see first-hand that we are a close-knit and welcoming community. We are a small institution and we pride ourselves on personalized attention in small classes. Our community ties are very strong, and we stress community service and service learning.

A career in the health professions can lead to tremendous reward – both personal and financial. Our graduates make an important difference in the lives of others every day and they make a good living doing so.

If you want to be an individual who makes a difference, I encourage you to consider us as the next step in your journey. Please look around our website and then come visit us. I have every confidence that you’ll be glad you did!

I look forward to seeing you on our campus.
