FOAM: Free Open Access Meducation – Medical education for anyone, anywhere, anytime
What is FOAM?
FOAM is Free Open Access Medical Education; a collection of resources, a community and an ethos. The FOAM community spontaneously emerged from the collection of constantly evolving, collaborative and interactive open access medical education resources being distributed on the web.
FOAM is independent of platform or media — it includes blogs, podcasts, tweets, Google hangouts, online videos, text documents, photographs, facebook groups, and a whole lot more. Just search for the #FOAMed to see what’s available.
FOAM is the concept, #FOAMed is the Twitter hashtag
