Rural WONCA hosts Consortium of Longitudinal Integrated Clerkships conference

A one day virtual (limited sessions) registration fee is now available through the main registration site.  This is for new online attendees only at a rate at €60.00

On Sunday 19 June 2022, the University of Limerick School of Medicine, in conjunction with the Irish College of General Practitioners and the Rural, Island and Dispensing Doctors, will host the Consortium of Longitudinal Integrated Clerkships (CLIC) conference.


Rural WONCA and CLIC have a significant overlap: many medical schools with LIC curricula are located in rural and remote areas; they share common values and priorities; and the theme of Rural WONCA ‘empowering communities to improve their own health’ will resonate with LIC educators worldwide.


International attendees are welcome to attend the full rural WONCA event, 17-20 June, or to join us for the day on June 19th.


The University of Limerick School of Medicine has an 18-week LIC based in general practice. We are Ireland’s newest medical school, with a rapidly expanding student body and teaching and learning network of general practitioner educators. Our longitudinal integrated clerkship is supported by this network, and our team is composed of dynamic clinician-medical educators. Learn more about us here.


The CLIC programme will involve plenary sessions, with internationally acclaimed speakers, a lively range of parallel sessions, including workshops, oral presentations and personally arranged learning sessions. CLIC conference themes include: Who teaches the teachers? Supporting LIC tutors; LICs: Relationship based education; and Student wellbeing and resilience – a priority for LICs.

Conference themes include:

  1. Who teaches the teachers: supporting tutors on LICs?

  2. LICs – relationship-based education

  3. Student wellbeing and resilience on LICs


**Rural Wonca full conference attendees can attend CLIC sessions without paying an extra registration fee**
