Collabrative Model for Medical Education
Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a collaborative model of medical education and care management developed by The University of New Mexico with the goal of empowering providers to provide expert care to their patients wherever they may be.
Project ECHO @ Joslin hosts virtual sessions that provide telementoring education, and personalized advice for primary care teams. Our goal is to inspire and embolden primary care teams to deliver professional, specialized diabetes care to their patients within their Medical home.
ECHO sessions enable primary care providers to treat patients with complex diabetes in their own practices and their own communities.
