"The best way to predict the future is to create it."   Alan Kay, Computer Scientist (1940 - )

"It's not about ideas. It's about making ideas happen."

The Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship (LIC) model, already influential nationally and internationally, completely restructures students’ (and their patients’) experience of caregiving. This patient-centered redesign eliminates the traditional, short “block rotations.” Instead, students learn the core skills of doctoring by following a large panel of patients longitudinally, over substantial time. Students see patients through all phases of diagnosis and treatment, including hospitalizations, discharge follow-up and even home visits.
