FAME Video Conferencing Series

The Fundamentals of Addiction Medicine ECHO (FAME) series is a 16-week video conference series for primary care physicians and clinicians that addresses various topics in the field of addiction medicine.

The ECHO video conferencing model is used to connect participants with a panel of multi-disciplinary addiction experts. Sessions are 2 hours each. The first 30 minutes is devoted to a didactic presentation on a featured addiction related topic. See below for a complete list of dates and topics. 

The Fundamentals of Addiction Medicine ECHO (FAME) clinic series is offered in collaboration with Project ECHO - University of New Mexico. This unique opportunity is offered exclusively for participants of The ASAM Fundamentals of Addiction Medicine 40-Hour Program.

How Does the FAME ECHO Model Work?

The model and project links expert specialist teams at an academic hub with primary care clinicians in local communities. Primary care clinicians, the spokes in our model, become part of a learning community, where they receive mentoring and feedback from specialists. Together, they manage patient cases so that patients get the care they need.
