2014 Second Look Program Additional Information

Lodging

We have recommended area hotels that offer special rates to applicants / students visiting Alpert Medical School. If you are interested in staying in a recommended hotel for the weekend, please see the AMS Accommodation Options 13-14 document listed below.

If you prefer to stay with a student host, please see that list posted below as well.

Looking to get a head start on your apartment / house rental search?

We have posted a helpful housing resources document ('Living in Providence 2014') on the bottom of this page. Some of our graduating medical students contact us with information about their housing being available for rent, and that is also posted below (and will be updated as we receive information). Many people are also communicating via the MD'18 Facebook page regarding roommates etc.

Arriving by Plane

Airport Taxi & Limousine Service provides regularly scheduled service between T.F. Green Airport and downtown Providence. Please call them at 401-737-2868 for further details.

Interlink, a train station accessible by skywalk from the airport terminal, is served by Amtrak and Masschusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA).

Parking

Similar to interview day, we will offer parking in the 222 Richmond Street garage adjacent to our building (enter on Elm or Eddy Street). Please take a ticket upon entering the garage, and then see our security desk upon leaving for a chaser ticket / validation. Otherwise, there is ample on-street parking around our building, although most spaces are metered and/or offer two-hour limits.

What to Wear?

Business casual dress is suggested for Friday afternoon / evening activities. Plan on wearing comfortable shoes as well. Weather permitting, you will be walking to the different activities on Friday. Early May’s weather in the Northeast can be unpredictable, so we suggest bringing a light jacket and umbrella.

For Saturday’s activities, casual dress is acceptable.
