About Project ECHO

Project ECHO™ (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) uses telehealth to transform the way education and knowledge are delivered. The ECHO™ model is a tele-mentoring, guided practice model that focuses on moving knowledge and not people.

Antimicrobial Stewardship Collaborative of South Carolina (ASC-SC)

ASC-SC is a collaborative amongst healthcare providers around the state of South Carolina with the common goal of coordinating to improve antimicrobial stewardship across South Carolina.

ASC-SC is led by a partnership between the University of South Carolina School of Medicine, University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy, and South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control.

We are generously funded by the South Carolina Center for Rural and Primary Healthcare.

In this clinic, you will interact with expert infectious disease physicians/pharmacists and other participating healthcare providers. This clinic has two target populations: ambulatory care/outpatient settings and inpatient settings (community and critical access hospitals). There will be 1 session for each target population per month, and participants will be able to receive free continuing education credits. Sessions will be conducted using a cloud-based video conferencing system called Zoom.
