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.


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.




(Hello! in Pitjantjatjara - the language of the Aboriginal people of the Central Australian Desert).

The Global Community Engaged Medical Education Muster occurred 27-30 October 2014 at Voyages Ayers Rock Resort - located in ‘The Red Centre' and situated adjacent to Uluru (also known as Ayers Rock), one of Australia's most recognisable natural landmarks.

'Muster' is a term primarily used in Australia to refer to the roundup of livestock. However, it can also refer to the calling forth of people to a gathering. ‘The Muster' brought together internationally recognised leaders in community engaged medical education and stimulated important discussions about key concepts and practices at the forefront of medical education: Longitudinal Learning, Community Engagement, Social Accountability and Aboriginal Health.


Along with a vital scientific program which has become the tradition of these conferences, a key feature of the 2014 Muster was the time set aside for community of practice discussion and reflection. Key features included 'white space' in the program and conference dinners to start and conclude the conference.

The 2014 Muster was the fourth conference to be hosted by Flinders University and Northern Ontario School of Medicine.  Partners in presenting the 2014 Muster were James Cook University, Federation of Rural Australian Medical Educators (FRAME), Training for Health Equity Network (THEnet) and Consortium of Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship (CLIC).  For information on previous conferences hosted by Flinders University, please refer to Muster 2010 and Rendez-Vous 2012.

 The Ukwanda RCS, FHS,

The Ukwanda RCS started in Jan 2011 with the first intake of 9 students. It is situated in Worcester 100 km from Cape town and surroundings rural towns in a radius of 130 km. At Worcester, a regional hospital, we follow a hybrid educational model with specialist rotations and weekly longitudinal primary care exposure throughout the year. At the surrounding district hospitals we follow a "pure" longitudinal integrated model (LIM) where students are based for the whole year in a primary care setting and work under the supervision of a family physician.  All the students meet every Wednesday at Worcester for tutorials.

One student unfortunately had to return to main campus for medical reasons. Six students were based at Worcester hospital and two students at Ceres District Hospital.

We are very happy to report that all the students passed and that one student on the longitudinal model passed with distinction. Next year we will have 21 students, 17 in Worcester and 2 each  in the longitudinal model in Swellendam and Robertson.

Rural Physician Associate Program (RPAP)

RPAP is a 9 month rural longitudinal clerkship program begun in 1971.  Each year approximately 40 third year medical students complete core clinical clerkship requirements in rural communities. Living in these communities allows them the opportunity to assume an authentic role in rural healthcare delivery systems and is designed to nurture their interest in rural medicine and primary care.
