Yes, I am at UM. Sounds like you have the same schedule I did - Monday lecture, Tuesday clinical. I'd be happy to talk with you about my experiences - send me a private message or an email through the site (little icons next to my username) and we can talk!
caliotter3, on our first 8-hour clinical day, we spent about 3 hours sitting in the cafeteria with our instructor going over the syllabus and his expectations, then we went to the floor for the rest of the day. Because of the accelerated schedule, we would have lost a clinical day if we'd used our first meeting just for orientation stuff.
Honestly, it was intimidating at the time but waiting another week wouldn't have helped much!
