Introduction – 90 minute video conference

Dip Your Toes In – Is ECHO for you?

ECHO Institute hosts a 90-minute videoconference session using the Zoom platform during which Dr. Sanjeev Arora presents for 45-minutes followed by 45-minutes of interactive discussion and Q&A. This is a great opportunity to hear an overview of the ECHO model and how it started, interact with others learning about ECHO for the first time, and meet members of the ECHO team.

Introduction dates for 2019:

Immersion – 3 Day On-Site Training

Deep Dive – In depth training to start your own ECHO

If your organization is ready to replicate ECHO, we offer a deeper dive into the model and next steps for implementation. Through Immersion, you will develop an ongoing relationship with our Replication Team and other ECHO staff members, who will assist you in setting up your own ECHO programs. This free, 3-day in-person training at the ECHO Institute in Albuquerque, NM requires that your organization complete a Launch Readiness Assessment and sign partnership documents before participation can occur. If you have not completed the assessment and signed partnership documents and would like to attend Immersion, please contact the Replication Team at

Target Audience

Organizations ready to implement ECHO: we suggest that organizations send an implementation team rather than a single individual whenever possible. The team composition varies, but we suggest at least one content expert or specialist (particularly important to bring the team leader), other members of your anticipated ECHO hub team and an administrative or coordination lead.


To participate in the Immersion training for replicating ECHO, you must:

Launch Readiness Assessment

We are excited and grateful that interest in Project ECHO continues to grow! As demand continues to increase, we are working to manage capacity for our training sessions.

Our goal is for your time investment in training to be as meaningful and impactful to your Project ECHO launch as possible; as a result, we’ve implemented some changes to our registration process.

To manage capacity, we’ve established a FIVE person limit per partnering organization for regular Immersion sessions. For March 2019 Immersion, which is being held in conjunction with the MetaECHO Conference, we are able to handle a larger team.

For April registration forward, prospective attendees will need to complete and receive approval on a Launch Readiness Assessment prior to registering for Immersion training. This assessment is to help you prepare to replicate the ECHO model and to ensure you attend training at the point in your ECHO journey when it will be most helpful to you.

If members of your organization have previously attended Immersion, please login to Box or contact your Account Rep to register for training. You will NOT need to complete the Launch Readiness Assessment form.

If you have questions or are unsure if you need to complete the Launch Readiness Assessment please contact

For all others click on the Launch Readiness Assessment link to access the form. Complete it, then save and email to A representative will get back to you within 3 – 5 business days.

For more information about this process, look at our assessment resources:
