Abstract

Content: If you want to know how we practised medicine 5 years ago, read a textbook. If you want to know how we practised medicine 2 years ago, read a journal. If you want to know how we practise medicine now, go to a (good) conference. If you want to know how we will practise medicine in the future, listen in the hallways and use FOAM (Joe Lex, 2012). FOAM is free, open-access medical education. As stated in the Hippocratic Oath: “…and to teach them this art – if they desire to learn it – without fee and covenant”, the FOAM community is bound by the loosely woven philosophy that high-quality medical education resources and interactions can, and should, be free and accessible to all who care for patients and especially those that teach others the art and science of medicine.
