Weitzman ECHO Complex Integrated Pediatrics connects primary care medical and behavioral health providers nationally with a multidisciplinary team of specialists in complex pediatric care. The Complex Integrated Pediatrics clinic uses twice-monthly videoconferencing sessions to explore a variety of topics designed to improve the quality of care and clinical outcomes for underserved children and adolescents. Specialists from Community Health Center, Inc., Connecticut Children’s Specialist Group, New England Regional Genetics Network, and the University of Connecticut present on key issues and provide recommendations on challenging cases posed by participants. The clinic is designed to emphasize the integration and collaboration between medical and behavioral health providers, reducing variations in care. Participants develop new clinical competencies and confidence with complex pediatric cases. The nine-month program addresses topics such as asthma management and treatment; obesity; diabetes; suicide/self-harm; autism; and cardiology.

This program aims to:
