VICKERS COMMENDS TLC²

he Tuscaloosa Longitudinal Community Curriculum (TLC²) received praise from Dr. Selwyn Vickers, vice president and dean of the University of Alabama School of Medicine, during his first State of the School of Medicine address, which he gave from University of Alabama at Birmingham on Jan. 28, 2015. The College of Community Health Sciences’s TLC² is a unique clinical educational opportunity for third-year medical students to live and train in a community under the supervision of experienced primary care physicians. The College provides clinical education for a cohort of third- and fourth-year medical students at the University of Alabama School of Medicine. Traditionally, medical students spend eight weeks in one block clerkship before moving onto the next. But a longitudinal curriculum allows students to learn at a deeper level, applying concepts and specialties over time and in multiple settings at once. Vickers called the Tuscaloosa Regional Campus innovative for TLC², and commended Dr. Richard Streiffer, dean of the College, for leading the College through its strategic planning process, which yielded the longitudinal curriculum, among other things. “The longitudinal curriculum allows [medical students] to engage with skilled clinicians who take them through the care of the patient across multiple diseases and multiple specialties,” Vickers said.
