How Does ECHO Work?

Oregon clinicians use videoconferencing to connect with specialists for multi-week interactive learning sessions. Expert presenters share their knowledge and clinicians bring their tough cases to get feedback from their peers and specialists. Past ECHO programs have covered Psychiatric Medication Management, Child Psychiatry, Liver Care,  and Addiction Medicine.
