Mission Statement

FOAM is a program committed to easing the transition into medical school by welcoming incoming students to the AMS community. By facilitating meaningful interactions between students through either outdoor or urban activities, FOAM provides an accessible opportunity to the entire incoming AMS class to build an early support network and to become acquainted with Providence and greater New England.

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 members of other AMS classes
