Project ECHO


The Clinical Education Initiative (CEI) offers an exciting new "telementoring" program for NYS providers of HIV/AIDS and STD 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 STD prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Each session will also feature a short didactic presentation on a topic of interest to you.

The result

educated and more confident in dealing with a wide variety of clinical situations, and will become more connected to other clinicians who provide STD and 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.

How to Participate

All NYS providers of STD and HIV care are welcome to participate, and teams of clinicans who work together at a single site are encouraged. Space initially will be limited to promote a high level of interaction among participants. There is no cost to participate.


Interested? Please let us know by clicking on one of our upcoming ECHO session below.

We're excited to be working with all of you in this new way!
