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.


The Muster 2018 conference brings together an international audience to explore and discuss community engaged medical education, social accountability in health training, longitudinal learning and rural medical education.


Conference on the move: 13-14 October 2018 Adelaide, Kangaroo Island, Mount Gambier

 Griffith University, Queensland, Australia 

The Griffith Health Rural Longlook Program began in 2010 with medical students completing their final year (of the four year postgraduate medical program) in rural generalist hospitals.  Since, it has expanded to final year medical students being placed in smaller rural general practices with community hospitals, and third year medical students assuming year-long placements in rural generalist hospitals.  The program is completely voluntary.  Students are incorporated into the rural health team working under the supervision of rural generalist vocational training “registrars”.  The program currently operates on the Darling Downs and in the South Burnett regions of rural Queensland.  Longlook now supports a dental student rural program and a rural-based midwifery program.  Longlook students participate in research projects of the University of Southern Queensland Agricultural Health and Medicine Research Group as part of the rural program.  

The Clinical SubDean for Rural Health is Prof. Scott Kitchener.

Integrated Clinical Apprenticeship (ICA)

The ICA is a longitudinal integrated clerkship for Imperial College London Medical School, which started as a pilot course in August 2016 for 24 year 5 medical students. Students spend one morning a week at a GP practice where they recruit patients mapped to the specialties covered in the year 5 curriculum (obstetrics & gynaecology, paediatrics, psychiatry, oncology, palliative care & genitor-urinary medicine) and follow them across healthcare settings over a period of a year. A weekly tutorial is delivered by a variety of tutors to reinforce the aims of the ICA which include: managing uncertainty, developing patient-centred and empathetic clinical practice, and developing personal resilience.

Students move from passive observers to active partners in their learning; acting as their patients' advocate and learning from their experiences with their patients.

 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.

WWAMI is a regional medical education program, an enduring partnership between the University of Washington School of Medicine and the states of Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho that provides publicly supported medical education for the five-state region. The WWAMI name is derived from the first letter of the names of each of the five partner states. Throughout WWAMI's 44-year history, many individuals, groups, hospitals, universities and government leaders have collaborated to advance regional excellence in medical education and meet physician workforce needs in rural and underserved areas.
