Project ECHO


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.

The result

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

All NYS clinicians are welcome to participate. Space is limited to promote a high level of interaction among participants. There is no cost to join.
