Summary:
Longitudinal Integrated Clerkships (LICs) are increasingly employed by medical schools. Introducing a LIC is complex and involves multiple stakeholders. There is a need to maximize the sustainability of a new LIC program, but there is limited literature that considers what is needed for a LIC to be maintained over time, including issues of acceptability to students, achievement of curricular goals, impact on the health needs of the community, cost-effectiveness and influence of context. This Masterclass will use presentations and facilitated discussions to explore key factors in ensuring sustainability of LICs and identify areas for future research collaboration.
