ICA© Summer School on Integrated Care takes place in Wolfson College, Oxford 
Summer schools are an ideal way of getting the most out of a one-week training programme. The intensive courses demand a high level of engagement and preparation from the participants, but the reward is an enriching and career-enhancing experience. Covering the grounds of a terms’ worth of input, the summer schools cater to high performing individuals, and are thus designed to address the specific needs of the target audience. A selective application process ensures that the effort is worth one’s while.

The 2017 International Summer School Integrated Care© is geared towards professionals, clinicians, managers and researchers from all relevant backgrounds, including medicine, economics, sociology, psychology, law, public health and social security institutions, with at least 5 years of experience in the field of integrated care. No limit on age or professional background applies.

Up to 30 participants will be selected following an application process (motivation letter and CV). The course language is English and a high proficiency (European level C1) is necessary. Applications will be accepted until 17 March. 


2 - 7 July 2017, Wolfson College, University of Oxford

Meet Integrated Care Pioneers in Edinburgh, Manchester and Wrexham!
Study tours offer a unique opportunity to meet integrated care pioneers in their natural environment and to experience and learn about integrated care practices from national and regional innovations. They are designed to support clinicians, managers and policy-makers with an interest and responsibility in the successful adoption of integrated care in policy and practice. Designed to be live case studies, the study visits offer the possibility to discuss regional and country-level strategies with the responsible decision makers, assess the barriers, facilitators and key drivers for integrated care at a regional and local level and reflect upon the transferability of lessons learned in moderated discussions and workshops.

The ICIC17 Three Country Study Tour will visit Scotland, England and Wales and seeks to examine the leadership and management of integrated care in these regions. Sessions will focus on the development of new models and approaches to care for older people with complex needs including the use of new technologies. Participants will also have the oppotunity to hear from reference sites from within the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA) B3 Action Group on Integrated Care.
