Mission Statement

FOAM is a program committed to easing the transition into medical school by fostering community among students.

FOAM encourages incoming medical students to:

  • Foster community among their class
  • Develop a support network for the transition to school
  • Explore Providence and the surrounding area
  • Connect with peers with similar interests
  • Build relationships with upperclassman mentors
