About Project ECHOAll teach all learn

Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is an evidence-based interactive distance-learning method developed by researchers at the University of New Mexico.  The ECHO model™ links teams of interdisciplinary specialists with primary care clinicians.  During ECHO™ sessions, experts mentor and share their expertise across a virtual network via case-based learning, enabling primary care practice teams to treat patients with complex conditions in their own communities.

University of Vermont Project ECHO Series

ECHO programs are offered at no-cost to participants through a grant from the Vermont Department of Health and participants receive free CE credits. UVM Project ECHO is cohort based, drawing participants from across the state. Each virtual learning session includes a brief lecture, a case presentation, and discussion. Cohort participants commit to participating in the full series, submitting cases, using a webcam, and actively participating in the zoom session. 

The University of Vermont (UVM) Office of Continuing Medical and Interprofessional Education (CMIE) is approved as a provider of Continuing Medical Education (CME) by the ACCME. Depending on the target audience for each series, CE is available for nurses, social workers, medical providers, and other health professionals.
