What is Project ECHO?

Project ECHO is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes medical education and increases workforce capacity to provide best-practice specialty care and reduce gaps in care. The heart of the ECHO model™ is its hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing networks, led by expert teams who use multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual clinics with community providers. In this way, primary care doctors, nurses, and other clinicians learn to provide excellent specialty care to patients in their own communities. VMAP is utilizing this model to improve access to mental health care for children across Virginia.

Year-long Project ECHOs

The Virginia Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Virginia Mental Health Access Program (VMAP) are leading year-long Project ECHOs on pediatric and adolescent mental and behavioral health.
