The International Consortium of Longitudinal Integrated Clerkships defines a LIC as a clinical curriculum in which students participate in comprehensive care of patients over time, engage in continuity relationships with preceptors and evaluators, and meet core clinical competencies across multiple disciplines simultaneously.
At the University of Colorado School of Medicine there are several LIC programs, listed below, that are leading the transition to an all LIC Clerkship year which will be implemented in the Trek Curriculum.
C-CLIC (Formerly ILMC): The Colorado Community LIC primarily places students in rural communities and focuses on rural community health.
COSMIC: The Colorado Springs Mentored Integrated Curriculum is a LIC program that is located at the Colorado Springs Branch and students focus on clinicial and community leadership opportunities.
DH-LIC: The Denver Health LIC focuses on urban underserved care, quality improvement and patient safety, health care systems, and health equity. Students are committed to caring for the vulnerable patient population and their capacity for self-directed, independent learning.
Northern Colorado LIC: The LIC program in North Colorado will be based at the Fort Collins Branch and focus on health care as it impacts all areas of life including people, animals and the environment.
VAST: The VA Sequential Training Program is a LIC hybrid program where third year students will spend their time caring for Veterans here at the Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center.
