CLIC – The Consortium of Longitudinal Integrated Clerkships

UK-LIC 2024

We are very pleased to announce that the next UK-LIC conference will be held at Newcastle University on Thursday 8th February 2024.  This is an ideal opportunity for new and experienced LIC (longitudinal integrated clerkship/placement) practitioners and researchers to share their experiences and hear from others.  The day will be equally suitable for practitioners and those who are not yet involved in LICs, as well as medical education researchers and students.  The aim is for UK LIC practitioners and researchers to share experiences and motivate and enthuse newcomers. We are honoured that David Hirsh, one of the leading international LIC experts from Harvard medical school, will be joining us.

The day will include plenary talks, workshops, short presentations and poster presentations, along with time to share and discuss informally with colleagues. To submit abstracts (deadline date Dec 18, 2023) use https://forms.office.com/e/MqsE6LhV79

There will be a small fee for attendance and registration details will follow in the near future.

CLIC Overview

The Consortium of Longitudinal Integrated Clerkships (CLIC) is a group of faculty from medical schools around the world who have, or are considering, developing, implementing and studying integrated clerkship models to address core clinical training for undergraduate medical education.

CLIC is a network of medical educationalists from universities around the world engaged in the development and delivery of Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship programs for medical students.

Core Elements

Longitudinal integrated clerkships (LICs) have the following common core elements:

  • Medical students participate in the comprehensive care of patients over time
  • Medical students have continuing learning relationships with these patient’s clinicians
  • Medical students meet, through these experiences, the majority of the year’s core clinical competencies across multiple disciplines simultaneously.

Students for Longitudinal Integrated Clerkships and Curricula (SLICC)

Are you a current medical student in an LIC or an alumnus of an LIC? We welcome your expertise through our various ongoing projects.

This site is maintained by the members of CLIC. It should be considered to be a link to individual schools and documents produced by the consortium rather than a point of contact for the consortium. If you represent a medical school with a longitudinal integrated clerkship and would like to have links to your program added to this website please use our contact form.

The CLIC web site is made possible by the support of the UWSOM and the Office of Rural Programs.
