Each year the CLIC conference draws attendees interested in learning the basics of planning, implementing and directing Longitudinal Integrated Clerkships (LICs). This preconference workshop is organized specifically for those interested in learning about and discussing the basics of LICs. This workshop will be of interest to participants who are expanding LICS especially from pilot phases. Designed as a highly interactive session, attendees will bring their ideas, questions, and challenges to the session and work with others from around the world that have traveled the same path.
Who should attend:
Faculty, deans and administrators considering or actively planning a LIC in their school, those who are in the early phases of implementation and all others who wish to engage in a “nuts and bolts” dialog about LICs. We welcome all – from pre-contemplators to those with experience who wish to share and learn together.
As a result of participating in this activity learners will:
- Define the basic principles that guide development of LICs
- Appreciate the plethora of opportunities in constructing the curriculum for LICs
- Describe and differentiate longitudinal student assessment models
- Construct a faculty development and program evaluation plan for LICs
The timing of starting this at 15H30 on Saturday 9th October(South African time – UTC +2).
