First-Year Orientation



Dear MD Class of 2020:

Welcome to The Warren 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 page, and most importantly our page that contains items to complete prior to arriving on campus. 

Orientation officially begins bright and early on Tuesday, August 2 at the medical school (222 Richmond Street).  That afternoon we will be sponsoring an adventure at a local ropes course, so be sure to wear or bring comfortable clothes and shoes!  Be sure to check out some of the optional activities that are scheduled for Monday, August 1 as well.   

Orientation will be a hybrid model of informational and fun team-building activities, and actual course work.  Classes begin on Wednesday morning, and both classes and Orientation activities continue throughout the week.   This hybrid model will prevent the information overload 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!
