University of Vermont Project ECHO

About Project ECHO

The Project ECHO model™. 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 teleECHO™ 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

These programs are offered at no-cost to participants through a grant from the Vermont Department of Health. Participants can receive CME credits for each learning session attended. 

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. UVM designates UVM Project ECHO educational activities for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.

Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables participants to earn MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program.  It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.
