Program and Registration

The CLIC 2019 Conference will be hosted in beautiful Vancouver, Canada.The Consortium for Longitudinal Integrated Clerkships (CLIC) is a group of faculties from medical schools around the world who have or are considering developing, implementing, and studying the longitudinal integrated clerkship model to address core clinical training for undergraduate medical education. Longitudinal integrated clerkships 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 patients’ clinicians.
  • Medical students meet, through these experiences, the majority of the year’s core clinical competencies across multiple disciplines simultaneously.

We welcome anyone with stakes in clinical education, be it LIC enthusiasts or first-timers, faculty, staff, or students. Previous participants have referred to CLIC Conferences as “unlike other conferences”, and “a place of debate and deliberation”. As continuity of relationships — with patients, peers, preceptors and/or programmes — underlies the foundation of LICs, we look forward to connecting, learning, influencing and championing change aimed at advancing clinical education and ultimately, patient care.


By the end of the conference, attendees will:

  1. Understand the challenges and benefits of Longitudinal Integrated Clerkships
  2. Develop strategies for implementing and ensuring the longevity and effectiveness of Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship programs
  3. Be challenged to think innovatively about new ways to deliver medical education
  4. Become aware of innovations that have been delivered internationally
  5. Build informal international networks among faculty, administrators and students
