Project ECHO is an innovative educational model and knowledge-sharing network. The ECHO model is a ﬂexible hub-and-spoke platform that allows specialists to share their expertise with learners in rural and underserved communities.
Joining the Movement can look different for each organization. Some organizations will Start an ECHO and use the ECHO model to amplify their impact by becoming a ‘hub’ (a regional center where teleECHO programs are located). Hubs share specialty knowledge with learners in or beyond their region. Other organizations such as rural clinics will Join an ECHO to become a community partner site or ‘spoke’ and connect to a hub via teleECHO sessions to expand their expertise in a particular ﬁeld.
Whether your interest is to Start or Join an ECHO, or simply to learn more, we encourage you to explore our Outreach & Training Events to see what best ﬁts your needs. And check our Events Calendar for a comprehensive list of dates, including Virtual Training options for those who are already working with the ECHO Institute.
