Freeport, Grand Bahama Island - Students of the Medical Education Review Program (MERP) had the opportunity to unwind and enjoy a relaxing dinner and bonfire on Taino Beach at Junkanoo Beach Club recently, all organized for them by the Student Services department. They dined on traditional Bahamian cuisine and listened to island music while gazing at the sunset. Later in the evening students gathered around a bonfire and had the opportunity to reflect on their first few weeks on the island.

“This event is one of many held to assist the students in enjoying island life and to emphasize the importance of relaxing between studies," said Mrs. Meg Osman, director of Student Services.

The MERP program is a rigorous 15-week program designed to provide preparatory basic science course content for medical school education. Students who successfully complete MERP are offered entry to Ross University School of Medicine located in Dominica.
