Welcome to ECHO

What is Project ECHO?

Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes non-clinical and medical education. The ECHO Model has proven effective across disciplines and geographies as a way to reduce disparities and drive collaborative solutions for local priorities. Educators who participate in ECHO programs learn evidence-based best practices, solve problems collaboratively through case-based learning, and implement new practices in their daily work with the support of local experts.  For more information, please visit: https://echo.unm.edu.
