International Summer School

International Summer School on Integrated Care (ISSIC24)

IFIC’s International Summer School on Integrated Care (ISSIC24) will be held in Oxford, UK from the 24th to the 28th of June 2024. We will be joined by global leaders and managers in Integrated Care for five days of immersive, face-to-face learning.

IFIC’s renowned Summer School has attracted participants from around the world since it was launched in 2017. It has been developed for those who are involved in designing, implementing, leading and/or managing integrated care and want to learn more about the initiatives, new practices and evidence on Integrated Care across the globe. Specifically, it provides a unique opportunity for networking, discussing real-world problems, and sharing learning with other participants and IFIC’s expert faculty.

Senior academics and practitioners and the IFIC team teach the course in different areas of Integrated Care, with a dynamic combination of lectures, workshops and practical exercises. Participants are immersed in the expertise of the Foundation, and ISSIC24 is a space for participants to share their experiences, concerns, and learning with their group.

The International Summer School on Integrated Care is designed as a stand-alone education and training course and is eligible for Continuous Professional Development (CPD) or Continuous Medical Education (CME) credits for professionals and managers.


The International Summer School on Integrated Care 2024 (ISSIC24) is a one-week intensive face-to-face training on theory and practice of integrated care from 24th – 28th June 2024 in Wolfon College, Oxford, UK.

This course is tailored for professionals in health and social care, including practitioners, researchers, managers, and decision-makers. It offers an in-depth exploration of integrated care theory and practice, helping participants improve their skills in analysing, designing, implementing, and evaluating integrated care approaches. Attendees will gain insights into international perspectives and practical management tools for integrated care initiatives.
