Telemedicine for Educators ECHO

In the northeastern US and around the world, people are not getting the care they need, when they need it, for complex but treatable conditions. Through telementoring, ECHO creates access to high-quality telemedicine education in local communities. Family medicine educators learn from telemedicine experts, family medicine educators learn from each other, and telemedicine experts learn from family medicine educators as best practices emerge for telemedicine.

ECHO is a virtual case-based telementoring educational model.

This program consists of 7 monthly virtual case-based telementoring educational model sessions.
All sessions held on Thursdays, 12:15-1:15 PM.
