We have a strong tradition of assisting aspiring medical students in building the foundation they need to be successful in medical school and to achieve their dreams of becoming physicians. Our entire focus is on your success.
That is why MERP offers a full money-back guarantee. If at any point you decide medical school isn’t for you, or you don’t pass the program, your tuition will be fully refunded.
Effective for the December 2014 MERP session, students in MERP who do not achieve a passing grade for the overall program will receive a full refund of program tuition. Students who have taken out a private loan will have their tuition refunded back to the loan provider
