After the didactic portion, the remainder of the session time is dedicated to case presentations. Cases presented do not necessarily relate to the didactic presentations for that day. By presenting challenging clinical cases to the specialists, primary care providers can participate in case-based learning and develop the skills and confidence to apply what they learn in their practices.  

What is Project ECHO?

Project ECHO is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes medical education and exponentially increases workforce capacity to provide best-practice specialty care and reduce health disparities. To learn more visit http://echo.unm.edu/.

How Does the TeleECHO Model Work?

Project ECHO 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.
