About CEI HIV ECHO
The Clinical Education Initiative (CEI) offers an exciting new "telementoring" program for providers of HIV/AIDS clinical care. Using the ECHO™ model, the HIV ECHO Sessions will provide you with a regular opportunity to discuss cases from your practice with experts in HIV/AIDS prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Each session will also feature a short didactic presentation on a topic of interest to you. The result? You’ll 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 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, it is different from telemedicine.
HIV ECHO will be held the 1st Wednesday of every month from 12:00pm-1:00pm.
