The Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship (LIC) track is a second-year curriculum focused on providing a patient-centered learner-centered comprehensive clinical-year curriculum with an emphasis on understanding longitudinal patient care in varied clinical settings in the context of health systems. Students will have an opportunity to explore all major subject areas of medicine and will be assigned LIC mentors to assist in directing their educational journal and exploring areas of clinical interest while developing a strong and broad foundation in clinical care of patients. This clinical year is a longitudinal integrated clerkship year (LIC). Students will do the majority of the clinical training in outpatient setting as well as follow a patient panel over the year.
