Medical Parents Committee

The Medical Parents Committee offers parents of PLME and medical students a great opportunity to become more involved in Alpert Medical School. Members participate in special programs and events of interest to parents designed to familiarize them with the Medical School, its programs, and faculty. In addition, members are asked to be goodwill ambassadors for the School through involvement in hosting events, planning programs, and supporting and encouraging parent giving to the Medical School. The support and participation of enthusiastic Brown parents have helped to ensure that Brown University and Alpert Medical School continue to be vibrant centers for teaching and learning.

The Medical Parents Committee meets every October during Brown's Family Weekend. Family Weekend 2014 will be held October 24-26. The next meeting will be held on Saturday, October 25, from 9-11 a.m. in Multipurpose Room 275 at the Medical School building (222 Richmond Street, Providence, RI).
