First-Year Orientation



Dear MD Class of 2019:

Welcome to the Alpert Medical School of Brown University!  We are looking forward to seeing you at Orientation and getting to know you over the next four years.

All of the information for Orientation can be found on this site.  Please read through our schedule of events, our other information section, and most importantly, our page that contains items to complete prior to arriving on campus

Orientation begins bright and early on Monday August 3, 2015 at the medical school (222 Richmond Street, Providence, RI).  That afternoon we will be sponsoring an adventure at a local ropes course, so be sure to wear or bring comfortable clothes and shoes!

Please note, this year Orientation will be a hybrid model of informational and fun team-building activities, and actual course work.  Classes begin on Tuesday morning, and both classes and Orientation activities continue throughout the week.   This hybrid model will prevent the information over-load so common to Orientations, as well as serve to ease you into your medical education. 

All Orientation questions can be directed to Emily Green, Director of Student Development ( Additionally, the Admissions Office has a welcome page here with useful information for students from all admissions routes. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
