What is Project ECHO?

Project ECHO is an educational program that uses videoconferencing and case-based learning to build skills, knowledge and capacity in primary care providers.

ECHO fosters an “all learn, all teach” approach.  Participants are engaged in the bi-directional virtual knowledge network by sharing clinical challenges and learning from experts and peers.
