    congrats to all that made it. Now, here is the game plan. Physio well be hard b/c he teaches it the right way. Therefore it is not intended for medical students. He goes to extreme detail, but than out of no where he will ask criticle thinking question. Biochem is just memmorization. No brainer. Biochem will not help when you come to the island. I garanteed it. Maybe for second semster. Miro excellent teacher, but you need that for 3rd semester. MERP is just checking your work ethics. You can never duplicate medical school work load. Unless you are in medical school. When you come out here, work smart don't work hard. At merp, its about working hard. Do not bye books. Bye Clinical case by Caztonzo (clinical cases) that is all you need. Pay attention to prof. James. he has exact same questions on mimi one when you come to ross. Lotocki is smart and has read many physio books, he throws infromation at you, you have to question everthing??? Please do not worry about biochem.
    ps. If you cannot make out there, please don't bother to come to ross. At merp they are spoon feeding you. when you are down and confused.. a professor, will kick you in the stomach, and say eat pooh pooh. Therefore make good friends come out here and work with eachother.

    FAQ about MERP

    Here is some advice from MERPROSS about the merp program in miami
    this is really good for everyone heading down

    The answers to FAQ about MERP!
    Hi y'all,

    I'm a MERP student. Wanna wish you good luck. Here is a little bit about the program.

    1. You are expected to dress in business casual attire for all classes. Only the first day, you will have to be in full business attire for orientation (they take your ID card picture so men in shirt and tie and women in their business attire). No jeans, shorts, t-shirts, sandals, flipflops, etc. to school. You wanna be doctors, start acting like doctors.

    2. You will have lectures Mon to Fri from 8am to noon.
    Mon = 8am-10am = Biochemistry & Genetics
    Mon = 10am-noon = Medical Physiology
    Tue = 8am-10am = Microbiology & Immunology
    Tue = 10am-11am = General Anatomy, 11am-noon = Histology
    Wed = 8am-10am = Biochemistry & Genetics
    Wed = 10am-noon = Medical Physiology
    Thur = 8am-10am = General Anatomy
    Thur = 10am-noon = Clinical Medicine
    Fri = 8am-10am = Microbiology & Immunology
    Fri = 10am-noon = Medical Physiology

    3. These classes are broken down into 4 graded groups in which you must acheive 70% in each class and an overall average of 80%.
    A. Biochemistry & Genetics
    B. Microbiology & Immunology
    C. Medidical Physiology
    D. General Anatomy + Histology + Clinical Medicine

    4. During the 16 week semester you will have weeks 1-5 followed by Mini 1, weeks 6-10 followed by Mini 2, weeks 11-15 followed by a one week reading week and Mini 3.

    5. The Minis.
    Mini 1 is a 110 questions on material from weeks 1-5
    25 = Biochemistry & Genetics
    25 = Microbiology & Immunology
    25 = Medidical Physiology
    25 = General Anatomy + Histology
    10 = Clinical Medicine
    Mini 2 is a 110 questions on material from weeks 6-10
    25 = Biochemistry & Genetics
    25 = Microbiology & Immunology
    25 = Medidical Physiology
    25 = General Anatomy + Histology
    10 = Clinical Medicine
    Mini 3 is a 220 questions on cummulative material from weeks 1-15
    50 = Biochemistry & Genetics
    50 = Microbiology & Immunology
    50 = Medidical Physiology
    50 = General Anatomy + Histology
    20 = Clinical Medicine

    6. Grading
    A. Biochemistry & Genetics
    25% = Mini 1 (25 questions on Mini 1)
    25% = Mini 2 (25 questions on Mini 2)
    35% = Mini 3 (50 questions on Mini 3)
    15% = Quizzes (6-10 during the semester, depends on hurricanes)
    B. Microbiology & Immunology
    25% = Mini 1 (25 questions on Mini 1)
    25% = Mini 2 (25 questions on Mini 2)
    35% = Mini 3 (50 questions on Mini 3)
    15% = Quizzes (6-10 during the semester, depends on hurricanes)
    C. Medidical Physiology
    25% = Mini 1 (25 questions on Mini 1)
    25% = Mini 2 (25 questions on Mini 2)
    35% = Mini 3 (50 questions on Mini 3)
    15% = Quizzes (35-40 on everyday of class including first day, depends on hurricanes)
    D. General Anatomy + Histology + Clinical Medicine
    25% = Mini 1 (25 questions {13 anatomy/12 histology} on Mini 1)
    25% = Mini 2 (25 questions {13 anatomy/12 histology} on Mini 2)
    35% = Mini 3 (50 questions {25 anatomy/25 histology} on Mini 3)
    15% = Clincal Medicine on Minis (10 questions on Mini 1, 10 questions on Mini 2, 20 questions on Mini 3)

    Acheive 70% in each class and 80% average overall and you get to go to the island the very next semester. You are not graded on the curve. So everyone can make it or no one can make it.

    I lived at a relatives so don't ask me for any advise about housing.
    If you have any questions about classes or the Minis and quizzes, e-mail me at [email protected]. Make sure you bring an umbrella to Miami. One minute sunshine, next minute downpour, next minute sunshine, then cats and dogs, then sunshine, then drizzle, all in a 10 minute span. Weather is crazy unpredictable. Carry an umbrella with you at all times.

    If you have some time before you get here, memorize the 12 cranial nerves, study some common bacteria like staphylococcus/streptococcus/neiserria, read up on diabetes/hypertension, etc. This will help you a lot when you get here.

    Work hard and I'll see you on the island.

    Books

    Hey I'll be joining yall in April and am pretty excited! I was wondering if a recent MERPer could tell us what books are being used for physio so we can start reading ahead and what other things we should be reading/studying/memorizing before we actually start MERP.
    Thanks!!

    just wondering how everybodys housing search is going for April's MERP '07. Have you guys started looking? Any previous MERP-ers/5th semesters have advice as to where to live. UNfortunately I wont be taking my car so I wanna live pretty close to the 7000 building. Also anyone coming from southern cali?
