Weitzman ECHO Celebrates 10 Years
See why over 7,500 medical and behavioral health providers from all 50 states have joined the Weitzman ECHO Learning Community, and what they are saying.
Supporting health care professionals since January 2012
Since January 2012, Weitzman ECHO has been engaging with health care professionals to reduce practice isolation across a variety of key topic areas. As one of the earliest replication centers of Project ECHO®, the Weitzman Institute delivers high quality education in an interactive environment, and all medical providers, behavioral health providers, nurses, pharmacists, and others can receive CME/CNE/CEUs for their attendance in ECHO through the Weitzman Institute’s proudly maintained status with Joint Accreditation for Interprofessional Continuing Education.
Interested in joining one of our active ECHO programs?
The Weitzman Institute is currently enrolling for a number of ECHO programs to offer additional support from expert faculty and a community of peers in these challenging topic areas.
Each ECHO program consists of regular videoconferencing sessions that meet via Zoom and use case-based learning to connect participants from around the country to a panel of interdisciplinary expert faculty members. During each session the faculty team will deliver a brief and informative didactic followed by a participant-led case discussion where the faculty will provide helpful and personalized feedback to the participant. Each ECHO takes on a similar learning structure, but they all have a different content focus tailored to the needs of each unique learning community.
