Start working with patients right away.

Your Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship (LIC) is much more than shadowing —and it means you don’t have to wait long to start interacting with patients. Our program places you in a family medicine or an internal medicine outpatient clinic almost right away. You’ll work under the guidance of a Kaiser Permanente physician-preceptor, helping a team of providers—nurses, pharmacists, social workers, and others— care for a panel of patients. The two-year clerkship lets you build relationships with real patients over time. Through your interactions with your

preceptor’s healthcare team, you’ll also experience the flow of a medical practice and how interprofessional communication enables safer, more effective care. You’ll put to use what you learn almost as soon as you learn it, and your physician- preceptor will guide you every step of the way. By the time you finish your studies, you’ll have four full years of experience working with patients and applying your medical knowledge holistically. Those skills will make you a more effective physician in any healthcare setting.
