A Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship is “a model of clinical education in which students participate in the comprehensive care of patients over time, engage in continuity of relationships with preceptors and evaluators, and meet core clinical competencies across multiple disciplines simultaneously” (International Consortium of Longitudinal Integrated Clerkships). This LIC is a primary-care track program with a focus on urban medically underserved communities in the Salt Lake valley and replaces the traditional block clerkships of Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Family Medicine, OBGYN, and Psychiatry. Students will care primarily for members of a disadvantaged population faced with challenges such as poverty, low health literacy, language barriers, chronic illness, and high rates of mental illness and addiction.
