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.
