CLIC – The Consortium of Longitudinal Integrated Clerkships

CLIC Request for Proposals (RFP)

Dear CLIC community,

We hope this announcement finds you well. We write to you with an important update. Circumstances in our world have made it such that the international Consortium of Longitudinal Integrated Clerkships (CLIC) 2022 Conference will not be able to take place in London, England. This opens an opportunity for applications for both CLIC 2022 and CLIC 2023.

Please find the CLIC Request for Proposals (RFP) attached and note the following: 

  1. Applicants can apply to host either meetings in 2022 or 2023 or may apply to host both.
  2. The hosting institution can determine if the meeting proposal is for one online/virtual meeting, a series of sessions/meetings throughout the year, an in-person gathering, a combination of these, or some other format — as long the meeting aligns with the CLIC values/mission/goals (reviewed inside the RFP).
  3. Traditionally CLIC meetings were simpler and more informal — they provided a place for being together as a community to think, discuss and debate, learn, support, strategize, and enjoy. Having a more formal/classical meeting is not a requirement. We are seeking to simplify the process of hosting the meeting in these uncertain times, and welcome creative proposals in this regard.
  4. We will have open discussion and Q+A at the current CLIC Conference ( NOTE: Most recent CLIC Conference web site will stay active for 6 months post conference.
  5. The deadline for applications is 30 November 2021.

We are excited to offer this opportunity to apply for creative CLIC meeting(s) to uplift the host and the participants alike.

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.
