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.

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.
