About

First-year Orientation to Alpert Med – affectionately known as FOAM – is a three-day program designed for incoming students at Alpert Medical School. Participants have the choice between two options: FOAM-In, which is a multi-faceted introduction to Providence and RI, and FOAM-Out, which offers three-day camping and backpacking trips around New England.

FOAM is an incredible opportunity to bond with¬†your new classmates,¬†connect with upperclassman leaders, explore Brown’s surrounding area, and have fun before the adventure of medical school begins.
