Project ECHO


The Clinical Education Initiative (CEI) offers an exciting "telementoring" program for NYS providers of HIV/AIDS, STIs and DUH clinical care. Using the ECHO™ model, CEI ECHO sessions will provide you with a regular opportunity to discuss cases from your practice with experts in HIV/AIDS and 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 DUH 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 providers of are welcome to participate. Space is limited to promote a high level of interaction among participants. There is no cost to participate.
