ECHO Idaho is an educational resource empowering healthcare professionals in Idaho’s remote or underserved communities to treat complex chronic diseases with specialist-level expertise. Clinicians across the state join using video conferencing for one-hour sessions that include brief lectures, case reviews, resource sharing and discussion of what really works. Sessions are conveniently scheduled, and participating providers earn free continuing medical education credits. In this way, Project ECHO revolutionizes medical education and exponentially increases workforce capacity to provide best practice specialty care and reduce health disparities.
If you are a physician, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, pharmacist, counselor, social worker, or other health care or social service professional who wants to improve their skills, then ECHO trainings are for you.
