The Clinical Education Initiative (CEI) offers an exciting "telementoring" program for NYS clinicians providing HIV/AIDS, STIs and Drug User Health clinical care. Using the ECHO™ model, CEI ECHO™ sessions will provide you a regular opportunity to discuss cases from your practice with experts in HIV/AIDS, Sexual Health (SH) and Drug User Health (DUH) prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Each session will also feature a short didactic presentation on a topic of interest.
You will be more educated and more confident in dealing with a wide variety of clinical situations, and will become more connected to other clinicians who provide HIV/AIDS, SH and Drug User Health care.
How does it work
Through monthly teleconferences, ECHO™ links expert specialist teams at an academic "hub" with clinicians in local practice settings, known as spokes in the model. Together, they develop a learning community where the spokes receive mentoring and feedback from specialists. Spokes are encouraged to send in real cases (de-identified) for discussion. Although the ECHO™ model makes use of video conferencing technology (ZOOM), it is different from telemedicine.
How to Participate
Medical providers (MD/DO, NP, PA, DDS) are the intended audience of CEI ECHO™ sessions, but all NYS health care providers are welcome to participate. To promote a high level of interaction among participants space is limited. There is no cost to join.
