Pacific Island Playlist: The power of FOAMed

Pacific Island Playlist – Track 4: The power of FOAMed with Alexandra Presler and Cian McDermot

FOAMed (Free Open Access Medical Education) is an important tool that so many of us are passionate about.

The ability for medical education to reach countries around the world is powerful and is driving us towards a healthier future.

In this episode of PIP, Alexandra Presler encourages us to lean into the FOAMed community.

Everyone can utilise FOAMed, regardless of your position, so talk to everyone, branch out and help make the community bigger.
