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.
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.
