The FOAMcast Mission
We believe in the educational merits of Free Open Access Medical education (FOAM), which includes podcasts, blogs, articles on PubMed Central, conferences streamed for free and more. As a result, we would like to encourage others to move beyond quoting podcasts and into the realm of tying “cutting edge” FOAM to the core content. On this podcast we’ll review FOAM and tie it to core content, providing some review and references for listeners to read on their own, as well as board review questions donated by Adam Rosh of the Rosh Review.
This isn’t a substitute for learning on one’s own but an example as to how to connect core content with cutting edge FOAM. Why, indeed, should we FOAM it alone?
